I describe but never quite feel, Cocooned, inured to pure reveal, Buried, layers down, intractable, Inoculated, reality non-contractable From this position of attrition, I mould and scrape a feeble rendition Of the revelation denied us By machinery on the jagged cusp Of improbability and despair, Created by no-one, from nowhere Out of the mind of […]
Ruth was the kind of person whose voice you had to mine before you heard it. I asked her, “Tell me what happened.” She said, “Do you really want to know?” “No, but some selfish part of me wants you to hear yourself talk about it.” My demons like me alone. They come to me […]
Todays topic is fake friends, have we not all had them ? yes high school brings about a time of insecurities, can we take a minute of silence for those still in high school ?, yes i got you high school people, hold on.
we all have had a fake friend at one point in our lives especially when we thought that being popular was all that mattered, and having friends in that popular circle of friends in school was our life achievement, we wanted to be that it girl and cheerleader, or perhaps you wanted to be that jock football player, well you guessed it right i was a nerd which was not cool, in school i wanted to have friends and be popular, but i just could not discontinue my introverted nature,.
so you probably guessed i had to move on and continue being my unpopular nerd self, that slept at home throughout the weekend, while studying chemistry or watching tv alone obviously, i did not have anywhere to go, so of course i tried making friends in school, i did come across so many fake people that pretend to be your friends sometimes while they really were taking advantage of your kindness.
and yes piece of advice don’t always be afraid to say no to helping people, i always thought that being unkind towards people was not going to get me friends, lets just say i was too naive for my own good, but towards the end of high school, of course i started improving, but back then i took it upon myself to treat people too kindly by offering up what ever they asked me to help them with.
In essence we all go through that phase in our life but trust me you don’t have to be popular in school, because once high school is over it doesn’t really matter because nobody cares about how popular you were in high school, and lets be real, no shade popular people don’t usually make it later in life, sometimes because of the popularity thing, they don’t study and therefore don’t pass or graduate on time.
Now with all that being said, you don’t really need to be popular, a couple of genuine friends is all that you need, study well and pass with good grades, high school will be over in a few years and that is a very small portion of your life.
Once you realise someone is a fake friend, take them out of your life, because you don’t need that much negativity in your life, the most important thing to know is that you may never see some high school friends again in your lifetime because once you go to college, everything changes as you become more focused on your life or career.
Ofcourse there is also the bullying issue, if you would like me to do a post on bullying comment down below, thank you for reading and
And the flu came
With a lot of nostalgia
Reminiscent of childhood
Once caught with a leaky nose
Forever in tissue armor
Left with a honking train in your ears
Until the pounding hammer
Assaults your overactive cerebrum
Well I caught the flu and I have a test this morning, never knew a headache could be an inspiration.
Admit it we all live monotonous lives no matter how much drama you try to create (sorry not really) i mean the amount of spice you add into your favourite stew, perhaps you chose a different way to school or work, maybe changed your breakfast yesterday and decided to go out with a different friend next week, well your life is most likely still monotonous

You still brush your teeth every morning and night, I still shower everyday in the same bathroom, eat food with same staples yet different spices or cooking methods, so I’ve decided to pack up and leave…………“lol” i used to hate this word and a poem about it will most likely be up around next week inshAllah and my adventures at cake decorating and driving lessons with my unpaid teacher AYA.

A gallery for you all
Oblivion hangs down on me.
peace treaty upon peace treaty
wars to massacres
colonisation or occupation
terrorism or murder
from the highest end of government
to the common man on the streets
since the beginning of time
maybe to the end
perhaps that is the irony
it is oblivion in its true form
Oblivion: The state of being unaware or unconscious of what is happening
