Dear Fear – Anxiety and Worry,
It’s been a long time coming and I hope this meets you well.
I’ve borne you for far too long and it’s not good for my health in any way, this part I know that you know because you always come by just to mock me. It so happens to be your favourite past time – the voice in my head mocking me!
In all of my days past, you have painted me the lie in a beautiful big portrait of how I’m no good and how I’ll amount to nothing, of how I’ll be blown away by the wind and forgotten like the falling star – no one ever cares if it was feasting with the galaxy kings before its fall; in the end it’s only a shimmering flash of light seen streaking across the sky.

I pick my pen from a basket of roses after so long and I trust you are doing well, if so doxology.
The impression you gave us in the beginning was that you were all we would ever need.
It was an easy Trap designed to Entrap,
Even though it constantly needed me to Recap.
At some point, it started to seem like Crap.
But Hey! For every time I was wrong; I got a Slap, Continue reading
I wonder what you will look like…
Will you inherit your grandma’s long hair?
Will you smile with your eyes like I do?
Will you be musically inclined like your grandad or will you play sports like your great-grandad?
I’m chuckling at the thought of you being short like me. Either way, you’ll always be perfect in my eyes – fearfully and wonderfully designed by the most exquisite Creator.
I don’t even know what your name will be yet, but one thing is certain; I will love you with all my heart.
You should know by now that though there is a lot of good in the earth, there is also evil. Continue reading
Hey Segun, Tobi, Shina, and Tiwa; I don’t know if you guys have noticed that the first letter of our names either starts with ‘S’ or ‘T’? Quite a coincidence right? The eerie part is when you guys realize that right after S comes T in the English alphabet.
Meeting you guys wasn’t a coincidence, we blended well like tomatoes and pepper (You all know who the pepper are right?). You guys are the best people that have joined my life in the past ten years. Well, except my girlfriend because she isn’t a people (Winks). Continue reading
Please use this time to find God because, even if it took me this long, I have finally realised that until you find God, you can’t find me in the right way.
Right way being the right methods, methods that will help me know it’s you.
You will need to do more than finding God for us to work. Loving him or at least trying to is also a necessity.
After that, please find yourself. Continue reading
My beautiful flower…
I am so excited to be writing to you.
Oh, how I have thought about the moment I will get to hold your tiny feet and behold your innocent green eyes (the green eyes yeah, that’s from your mother).
I remember the day we found out we would be having you: it was on a Sunday evening and I had just gotten back from a European worship tour with Travis, Taya, and the entire Hillsong United team – yeah, we go way back…
Immediately your mom revealed the overwhelming news; “I Am Pregnant”, waves flashed through my brain and I wasn’t quite sure what to expect… Continue reading
Dear Future Husband,
It’s my first time of writing you one of these letters, Kleb put me up to it.
Pardon me for striking out the word “future” as a prefix in your title, that was on purpose, as I believe the future is now.
How are you? Did you see the news lately? My entire side of the state was flooded badly and even though my head was under water, I am doing just fine. I appreciate your prayers, as I know you are out there praying for me as always so I say “thank you”.
To be honest, each day I spend on social media gives me a glimpse of the struggles you are going through as a single man, living in a metropolitan world. I know and absolutely understand how not easy it is, I can assure you I get your pain. Continue reading
