#30Letters II



I trust that this meets you well.

It’s the 2nd cycle of the writing series  #30Letters!!! Yay!!!

It starts on the 1st of April and runs through the #30 days in April.

What is #30Letters about?  

The idea is for ‘writers’ to write a letter addressed to a person or group of persons, organization, something or anything they are passionate about. Click here to read letters from last season.(Be warned, you may cry some and laugh some…lol)

Who qualifies as a ‘writer’?

Anyone who can string a few words together, expressing his/her thoughts about a  subject matter qualifies as a writer in this context. So, don’t be an onlooker.

It can be good, it can be bad, it can be ugly, it can be funny, anything that comes to mind. For example;

A Letter to My Next

A Letter to My Future Wife (or Wife -as the case may be)

A Letter to Women

A Letter to Men

A Letter to God

A Letter to My Kids/Children

A letter to Ngozi

A Letter to my Crush

A Letter to Rice & Beans

A Letter to Nigeria

A Letter to My Ex

A Letter to Love

The list, however; is inexhaustive, so, you are free to choose anything you want to write about. One Letter will be published a day for 30 days.

Dive in, dig deep and start writing your letter(s).

You can start sending your letters today.

The deadline for submission is the 3rd of April, 2018.

I will appreciate if you can do this. Please let me know as soon as you can. If you can, please mail me at ekpenyongcaleb@gmail.com

Thank you and enjoy the rest of your day.



#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – There will be Storms…


Life has taught me that people can turn against you so easily. Even those with the best intentions. Even those you least expect. This is one lesson that gets me scared. I remember instances where this lesson has been forcefully crushed into my brain and sometimes I am numb. I have learnt that best friends might become sworn enemies. People you trust can betray you in a split second. And so I am naturally wary when it comes to making new friends or keeping friends. Because I figure, they might leave eventually. Don’t get me wrong- I am not bitter. People who know me would tell you that. But now I understand that people can just up and leave. It happens. This has helped me stay strong when that happens or when I have been hurt by people. Continue reading

On Moving On!

Moving on

It was supposed to be easy. After all, it was always easy. But it is not the case right now.

What have you done to me? Why I’m I the one dragging my feet in the emotional ocean that ‘Love’ has cascaded over my soul?

I was the best at walking away and leaving them hanging. How did I get undone? The chess champion has been doused. It was all in the name of Love – Now blindsided, no more playing seven moves ahead. Continue reading

Letter to Fear, Anxiety and Worry


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.

Letter to My Unborn Daughter

unborn daugther

Dear Daughter,

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

Letter to my future husband

Hey love,

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
