Regrann from @rahlee - If you have to beg the One you love to stay, then THAT IS NOT LOVE. You are unique, you are beautiful, you are strong, you are bold, you are courageous. You dont have to force love, you dont have to beg for it. It comes of its own freewill and when it does, its Unconditional. If its not meant for you, let it go and accept it has gone. Believe You will find someone who will love you for you and stay with you, no matter the storm. . . . #poem #poems #poemsporn_ #poemsofig #poemcommunity #worldofpoets #spilledink #spilledinkpoetry #write_o_mania #poetrycommunity #poetry #poetryofig #poet #poets #poetsofig #poetscommunity #africanwritersfeature #africanpoets #bymepoetry #bymepoetryafrica #thesmartwriters #artlixirpoetry #artlixirfresh #blackwriters #blackpoets #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writercommunity #writersoninstagram

In life, you'd come across several doors. I mean, so many. Sometimes, many at a time, other times, one at a time. . Most times, we complain that doors don't open to our favour, forgetting that we possess the keys to every door we want open. . Have you ever considered that you may be putting the right keys into the wrong keyholes? Have you first of all decided what you want from each door, to be able to discover which door to open. . Finding your purpose in life is very crucial as it would determine which roads and journeys you embark on. . Just don't forget that "you have your keys" . Hey! It's another Monday. Have a nice week ahead. Good day. #monday #mondaymotivation #motivational #motivationalquotes #motivation #igpoets #inspirations #top #africanwriters #africanpoets #af #ngwriters #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #wordporn #words #word #poetsofinstagram #poetry #poetryisnotdead #p #monday #pleaseread #thepoetlist #newschoolpoetry
~ You really are something 🖤
Yes you do! Do not let anyone make you feel that you don't. Your existence is something to be proud of. You are the answer to someone's prayer, the solution to society's problems, the light to someone's darkness, the love to the world's hate. We can't change this world without you, so yes, you matter. However, you only matter if you think you do. I hope this meets you well. My name is Chosen and iAm an upcoming genius. #wordstagram #poetsofig #writersofig #poet #poetry #life #africanwriters #villagewriters #black #blackwriters #nigerian #nigerianwriters #b #bookstagram #instapost #poems #poetrycommunity #poem #writersofinstagram #poetofinstagram #africanpoets #africans #instagram #bookstagram #africanwriter #africanpoet #wordporn #rebel #iAm
Is it true that every man is a potential rapist? Is it true that in most rape cases, the assailant is someone you know- a friend, a relative, even a lover? This is to the brothers: do not give in, don't take what you aren't given. And sisters, listen to these words. #poetsofinstagram #africanpoets #wordsmanship #saynotorape #

An owl is just like other bird, an owl is just as which An owl is one nocturnal bird, an owl is not a witch An owl could even share your bed, and just as what I preach That what we don't understand, turns evil #ccmpoetry #ccmpoet #ccmpoems #creative #poetsofinstagram #poetry #poem #poet #poemoftheday #poetrybyccm #writerscommunity #writer #writersofinstagram #africanpoets #poetsofafrica #nigerianpoet #wordplay #writing #myth #evil #whatturnsevil #ccmwhatturnsevil
