🖤Most People Remember You Only When You Seem To Remember Them 🖤 ~~~~~~~ Let's endeavor to keep in touch with one another. I know life does its best in pulling us apart but a little call never hurt anybody. Its a sign you remember someone, you care about him/her, you care about his/her faring. • • • #21stcentury #technologicalage #poems #poemsofinstagram #poemsoninstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisntdead #spilledinkpoetry #poemcommunity #poet #poets #poetcomunity #poetry #igpoet #poetsofig #igpoetry #instapoetry #africanpoets #writersoninstagram #africanwriters #africanwritersfeature #writersoninstgram #bymepoetry #bymepoetryafrica #worldofpoets #thescribbledfeelings #bleedingsoulpoetry #poetofinstagram #write_o_mania #bleedingwriters #indigenouswriters

You know.... I remember you telling me "i'm proud" I don't even know what you talking about I just want to be myself I spend my life in a drea i can't escape It's a comma i can never stay awake..... . . I look around, everyone telling me i'm full of myself I don't even know how to escape the train i ride in I pledge is not my pride, is the way my life erupts Hold me down.... . . .

I never said I'll be flawless Or course the odds opposite those that brought you loses. I never said I'll be your surest; Or be your fondest allure to obscure your flaws when you're insecure about who to love, my demure lady. But if I can assure you my heart's pure as far as truth goes and I'm ready to cure my sins as far as you abhor, as slow as years go Will you endure my uncertainties till we both sure we're all we need to manure this odd feeling we share within our core?

Team member Susan had this to say about writers block: "It happens. I’ve been there; you just stare at your screen or paper and do just more of that, stare. You know you have to write, but the words just don’t come. It’s like your pen and paper have become sworn enemies. Relax. There are things you can do to smash this so-called block to pieces. Read on. 1. Examine yourself. Are you sure it’s really ‘writer’s block’ and not the sneaky fellow called procrastination? (Just checking.) Or are you just not confident of your creativity? You can confide in someone about it. 2. Practice free writing. Just. Write. Don’t bother whether to use “asides” or “besides” or if the last line you wrote sounds cliche. Be free, don’t restrict your creativity by being overly conscious of grammatical errors, punctuation or tenses. Editing can come later, first let your pen dance, and enjoy the process.

An author is a creator of a piece of writing. Whether a poem on his page or an article on a website or a book. As long as you've written something of literary finesse you are an author. #TAWCares #TheAfricanWriters
Sorry I've been absent, life in school has never been easy, but I'm back now. How y'all doing. This is part 4 of my CONFESSIONS of A bOy series for the #boysarehumanstoo movement on IG and fbk. If you've been following this movement, you'll know what it's about. #wordstagram #poetsofig #writersofig #poet #poetry #life #africanwriters #villagewriters #black #blackwriters #nigerian #nigerianwriters #b #bookstagram #instapost #poems #poetrycommunity #poem #boysarehumanstoo #writersofinstagram #poetofinstagram #africanpoets #africans #instagram #bookstagram #africanwriter #africanpoet #wordporn #rebel #iAm
This poem is about spirit animals, and more specifically, about having an owl as a spirit animal. It's funny because most of the times, owls are often associated with darkness, witchcraft and evil. They are feared and seen as a messenger of death. Yet that death is usually just a symbolic one: a change of situation, a new beginning, a desired ending. . . I've discovered that in certain cultures (Greek tradition), they are in fact seen as protectors and in others (Egyptian and Celts), as the gatekeepers to other realms. But what they are undoubtedly recognized for is their wisdom and sacred knowledge. They are after all, the best listeners, the perfect guide and mentor in this world and the other. . . Do you know your spirit animal ? What are its features, its strengths ? . . #poetry #poem #instagramwriters #poetsofinstagram #spiritanimal #owl #protector #gatekeeper #wisdom #knowledge #Africanwriters #africanpoets #poet #beninesepoet #denverpoet #art #feminassi

We understand that a lot of people would rather TALK than WRITE. So, since we are interested in driving the much needed revolution through books, here's the deal How about you record yourself teaching what you know and do, sharing your experiences and those things you wished everyone knew and let us take it up from there? Would it gladden your heart to become an author without stress; with a book with appropriate and appealing covers, laid and marketed to the right people? Or don't you want to impact the world and make money at the same time?

ART BY THE AMAZING @osengwa I could just be here. (A little girl's plea) "Many men are good at wandering", she says. They never look back, like dads that made their daughters sad. Like dads they made us mad. You can go, further a bit further and come back if waiting for you is my portion,i pray I reject it with every inch. But destiny got me tongue tied to promises like; "I will love you forever " Sometimes, we let that, that very words get the greater part of us. #poemsofig #poets #writing #poetrylovers #poetryetal #artphotography #artist #words #word #wordswithkings #africanwriters #africanpoets #ghanaian #ghanaianpoets
GRATEFUL. ● My approach to life was like that of a naked man feeling the unkindness of a chill wind, and touching the glittering skin of a cold lake with his toes . I was always guarded, my heart valves were like cautious leaflets shutting out my wild desires that could've transformed to a bold leap into the unknown ● However, I couldn't keep myself from falling for someone who made me feel larger than life . I couldn't contain the overwhelming feeling of an out-of-body experience when a simple touch explained all the mysteries of my universe ● Our first kiss taught my heart how to speak in a language I could finally comprehend . I have been a recipient of your love and devotion, and it makes me feel like one of the stars in the sky that told their stories in the language of light and beauty . Being a part of you gave me the emotional maturity that had eluded me all these years. It permeated my being like a 1000 Joules of virtues that I've always needed ● For a long time the complexity of my fear generated a toxic friction between my heart and my mind. It resulted in a bad case of pessimism . Looking back to when I was swimming in calm waters, I realised that there were sharp stones and they were like spikes to my skin ● I'm just grateful that your love perfused my fears and they became art . I'm grateful for the beautiful stories of these wounds that replaced my ignorance . I'm grateful for the magnificence of you . I'm grateful that I found the reason for everything, and it is you ● -----●●●LUCAS ●●●----- ● . My debut book " ...THEN I GREW WINGS " is available on Amazon.

Part 3 of my CONFESSIONS of A bOy series for the #boysarehumanstoo movement on IG and fbk. Dear brothers, you know that moment when you get a glimpse of how you almost lost the girl you love, like how you both almost never happened? Well, it's called an alternate reality. No, it's not weird that I'm being 'emotional' about love, I'm human too. Being all mushy, is not a girl thing, it's a human thing. Allow me to be mushy. This movement isn't all about pain, although it's mostly about pain, it's generally revealing the emotional side of. Guys, and that includes love too. My name is chosen and iAm an upcoming genius. I hope this meets you well. Good morning and happy reading. Join the movement on IG by tagging me or using the #boysarehumanstoo hash tag so I can repost your post on IG and on fbk, tag OHENHEN EBUWA AISEOSA or Iam Odasi to your entry on fbk so we can post it on our walls.. #wordstagram #poetsofig #writersofig #poet #poetry #life #africanwriters #villagewriters #black #blackwriters #nigerian #nigerianwriters #b #bookstagram #instapost #poems #poetrycommunity #poem #boysarehumanstoo #writersofinstagram #poetofinstagram #africanpoets #africans #instagram #bookstagram #africanwriter #africanpoet #wordporn #rebel #iAm
Deola has been able to achieve the crux of what this movement has been trying to achieve. This is the true aim of this #boysarehumanstoo movement on IG and fbk. She has shown us that boys are truly human, she has indirectly won all my arguments about why I chose to start this movement, she has shown the pain of some of the boys that are her friends, she has shown us the pain they hid behind smiling masks. I hope you now understand that this movement is more than a bunch of people coming together to write poems on how boys also suffer. No, the movement wants you to talk to the male persons in your lives, from your dad, to your brother(s) to your male cousins and male friends, your male pastors, ask them their pain, their regrets, their aspirations and dreams, tell. Them it's okay to cry when they feel down, it's okay to talk to someone, tell them you are always there when they need to talk, let them know you understand what they going through and even if you won't , you still want them to talk to you whenever they need to talk. By so doing, you'd become closer to them and you'd have achieved what this movement wants to achieve. My name is chosen and iAm an upcoming genius. To participate in this movement on IG, tag me @iam_d_anomaly to your post or use the #boysarehumanstoo hash tag so I can repost your poem on my page. On fbk, tag OHENHEN EBUWA AISEOSA or Iam Odasi to your post on fbk so we can share it on our fbk walls. I hope this meets you well. #wordstagram #poetsofig #writersofig #poet #poetry #life #africanwriters #villagewriters #black #blackwriters #nigerian #nigerianwriters #b #bookstagram #instapost #poems #poetrycommunity #poem #boysarehumanstoo #writersofinstagram #poetofinstagram #africanpoets #africans #instagram #bookstagram #africanwriter #africanpoet #wordporn #rebel #iAm
