ON DEAD ALOE VERA plants ?

HMmmph

cutting the along story short my aloe barbadensis mini basket plantation fresh green luscious and full of  amazing also vera gel  almost passed away, well I’m trying to save some pups by performing an emergency surgery  on them FOR REAL

they have been repotted so far so good hopefully they can root and survive the fungi infestation, this deadly disease came unawares and you don’t know its there because there won’t be signs until it eats up the roots and by then ITS TOO LATE.

Tides came

The tides came and

Washed her steps away

As though footprints were never engraved

Her feelings washed away with the tide

But the tides come and go

So do people.

Hello wordpress I am back finally and here to stay not like tides hopefully.

BLOGVERSARY

HELLO ! WORDpress

Today marks the three year anniversary of #OACOJ BLOG and we have been sipping some jasmine tea since and FYI i actually have a jasmine plant in my backyard.

Three years ago i decided to start sharing my random and not very professional poems and write ups in here today , alhamdullillah I’m about to complete my first poetry book called the desert and beyond and it is available  for free on wattpad, and my first published novel A heart for the Slum also available on wattpad.

I couldn’t imagine coming this far I actually didn’t think i would have people who understood me and actually read my write ups or even followed me on here, today I’m grateful for this opportunity , an internet connection and my readers, you keep me going even when i lose motivation and suffer a writers block or when I’m absent for over a month and very inconsistent , SORRY I Have sickle cell Disease so sometimes i can’t make time for my blog, yes being chronically ill makes you BUSY.

BYe ! Thank you

misogyny is celebrated

misogyny is enamored by us

boys will be boys , they said

but she is a girl, why not………..

endless improvement suggestions

pushed down our throats

why can’t you keep your husband straight, you have failed

see so and so her husband doesn’t do this, why not………….

why is he beating her,  she is not clean

she does not know how to keep a man

why will he, if she had been coy, sweet talker, better cook

better yet always improving herself

Be more patient, are you praying ?

while no effort is made over there,

so i say, why not….he…………….

can she clap with one hand ?

better yet, is he still a child ?

endless rhetorical questions
