Rejoinder to Letter To My Ex


Dear Ex,
I trust that you are doing well. I read your letter, the one you sent me via the #30Letters series. I must say I was a bit hurt by your words and how you decided to tell our story and I respect that this is your view – how you saw it, how you felt. I’m not one to step into the fray but I’ll do this at least for my own sanity and for my fiancé – You remember Oseme, yes, that Oseme – over the weekend, she the one word I’ve always wanted to hear – Yes!

The ones who’d try almost anything
Because daddy did it. Continue reading

Letter To You, The Balling Baller


Dear Balling Baller,

Balling baller
Cross with the money.

How does it feel now? What you deeply desired has now become a reality. What was once a dream is now a routine. You can now buy everything you’ve ever wanted. You can travel and stay anywhere for as long as you like. Price tags have nothing on you. Continue reading

Letter To My Future Daughter


Dear future daughter,

I’m sorry that you are not here with me just yet. I had thought that by now you would be in my arms crying and smiling day and night.

Every day of my life as I wait for you to come to daddy I keep seeing you everywhere I go. Just yesterday I saw Continue reading
