Hey Babs, I guess this is my second time of writing to you about the same concern. I’m so sorry to bother you. You’re not here yet, but I’ve loaded you up with the stress of the world already. It is not my intention to be this creative about writing you all. Sometimes, my world […]

Sometimes

Sometimes, love takes away the light in your life and leaves you in the dark. Alone! Sometimes, love takes your breath away and leaves you to choke. Alone!

Mystery about the moon and stars

Mystery behind fogs and snow

At present, most of the independent African states are moving in directions which expose us to the dangers of imperialism and neo-colonialism.

I want to be married and cannot tell how

To the field I carried my milking pail On a May day morning early, And there I met with a smart young man, Who said that he lov’d me dearly. I made him a curtsey, he made me a bow, He kissed me, and promised to marry, I vow, Oh! I wish that young fellow […]

The Happy Beggar Man
