Have you ever looked at someone and you're like, "I've seen someone who looks like this person, only much older?" Well, it happens to me alot. I see faces in the faces of others. Most of the time, I tell myself that I've already seen how this person would look like when they're 30 or 40 or any age that pops into my mind. (I've seen an older version of their face on someone else) But I've never seen my face in the faces of others. I do not know how I will look like when I'm older, I do not have an inkling of I'd be more handsome or uglier. Sometimes I get scared that I do not actually exist, maybe I have never reincarnated or maybe I'm simply special. I just don't know which one is true! 😭. My name is chosen and iAm an upcoming genius. #wordstagram #poetsofig #writersofig #poet #poetry #theafricanwriters #africanwriters #blackwriters #nigerian #nigerianwriters #bookstagram #instapost #poems #poetrycommunity #poem #writersofinstagram #poetofinstagram #africanpoets #africans #instagram #bookstagram #africanwriter #africanpoet #wordporn #rebel #iAm
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Proverbs 31:8 NLT . . . In a world that thrives on deception, negativity and ignorance, be a voice will you? . . Speak! For the down trodden. Speak! To the naive and exploited. Speak! And be honest! Speak! For the molested Speak! To the depressed Speak! To the hurting Speak! For virtues and values! Speak! And restore hope when lost Speak! To the fearful, feed them courage Speak! Command your cosmos! Speak! To the lost one who has no idea all the riches that is his in Christ Jesus! Speak! Ignite the fire of revival!!! Speak!!! Till the world can hear! . . . Make that a goal today!!! . . . #smash_your_goals #Jesus #teamJesus #JesusChrist #faith #truth #inspirationalquotes #lifequotes #spiritual #blessed #word #poetry #poem #poets #christapoetteam #christian #christianpoetry #wordart #nigerianpoets #africanpoets #CelebratingWriters #ForgivenAndLoved #Christapoet #SpokenwordVideos
TIME 🕕 A Poem of Idioms & Wordplay.
Latest installment in my Hausa color series. I’m running out of colors; I don’t want to have to use ruwan menene da ruwan menene. I want real names. It’s a gradual process of me trying to get better at writing in Hausa. Hausa metaphors are one of a kind. #hausawriters #hausapoets #nigerianwriters #nigerianpoets #africanwriters #africanpoets #poetrycommunity #hausapoetry #hausa

Dear Writer, ARE YOU CURRENTLY BATTLING WITH SELF-DOUBT? Here are some inspiring quotes from successful people to motivate and get you moving. 1. “You may be the only person left who believes in you, but it's enough. It takes just one star to pierce a universe of darkness. Never give up.” - Richelle E. Goodrich. 2. Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine. - Roy T Bennett 3. “If you don’t give up on something you truly believe in, you will find a way” - Roy T Bennett 4. “Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution.” - David J. Schwartz 5. “They will always tell you that you can't do what you want to do, but you can do what you want to do. You just have to believe in yourself. The system is to bring you down, but you can rise up.” - Bob Marley Did this motivate you? Share with us below. #TAWCares #TheAfricanWriters

There isn't enough exposure to sun to grow salvia officinalis. My morose soils hold no potency to host botany. No lectures can be held in the auditorium that is my cranium to ponder enlightenment or peace. Just an opto-mechanical contraption flickering grainy shots of the mishaps of dealing with life. Shots that I knock back neat. Until I grow inebriated on anger. Drunk on shame. Relived again and again. Until my self worth PH levels are acidic. A taste that is acrid. A taint that won't leave. I need to grow salvia officinalis. I need it to embed itself in every crevice of tissue. I need it to seep into my cell membrane. Need it to be a part of my DNA. I want the scent of sage to emanate from me & hold people enraptured. Like lovers of The Divine when in worship. Inhaling the remedy to the soul through Dhikr, Oud & Bukhoor. Noor upon noor. Haqqi bil-Haqq. I want to light a lone match & burn sage until my body is engulfed in scented flames. Expunge the spectres. __________ Sometimes illumination is like radiating beams of sunshine. Sometimes illumination is being set alight like a bunch of sage leaves. Both types are beneficial and healing. #perspective Image credit: @pixelendo

The youth conscious have made a decision to have African people all over the world truly emancipated socio-politically and economically. This is where this movement is heading : We should be politically conscious that power belongs to the people. Economically conscious that resources should be shared among the people to develop the country. Socially conscious that we should care about the well being of our citizens #WeAreOneAgainstThem for true DEMOCRACY. #AfricanMustWakeUp . . . . . #ThisIsNewAfrica #AfricanPoets #AfricanWriters #LetUsCreateOurOwnMedia #LuCoom #AfricaIsTheFuture #AfricanEntrepreneurs #BlackOwnedBusinesses #NoToRacism

Dual anthology compilations... • Stargazer- When you're locked out by what makes you human, you're left with one choice in the gloomy hour.. • This to most likely be 'Diffusion'. The heart of the anthology and title choice would be discussed later(probably when there's enough poems for the anthology) • For now, the few lines will suffice👌💕. • #ProgressRWNG #anthology #writercommunity #diffusion #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #amwriting #amreading #poetsofinstagram #poem #poetry #writer #writers #author #teen #teenwriters #withervale #amscribbling #teenauthors #teenpoetsofinstagram #nightsky #africanpoets #stargaze #authorsofinstagram #africanwriters #stargazer #books

A Lion never begets a goat. God cannot beget less. You are born of God... Spirit. Knowledge of God is knowledge of self. Strength to do, must come from the knowledge of who you are. . . . . [I always pray] that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may grant you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation [that gives you a deep and personal and intimate insight] into the true knowledge of Him [for we know the Father through the Son].
