#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 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

Letter to my future husband

images 001

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

Letter To My Next





Hey ‘boyfriend in five years to come ‘,

I hope you’re doing great?

Let me introduce myself: Sharon, 5’ 4″, a little fair; kinda chocolate but not exactly like these perfect brown skinned sugar coloured girls… My complexion is kinda confused. You know: not fair, not dark, just ermm…just fine. Tiny pimples and spots here and there but not scary at all, nothing to worry about plus a good powder does well to cover them up.

You see, it’s quite important you know some of these things so you’ll have a slight picture who you’re about to meet. I’m not the most beautiful girl you’ll ever see on Earth ‘cos I’m not even the most beautiful girl in the neighborhood *rolls eyes*. I mean, I knew that Continue reading

Letter to the Future Love Of My Life


23, Joyce Ofune Street,
Chevy view Estate,
Lekki, Ajah.

Hey babe,
How are you doing my love? I trust you’re not having such a swell time without me in your life, that’s your cue to find me already man!. Well, I ain’t doing so great either (we’ll get back to the reasons in a bit). How’s my future mama in-law and papa in-law doing? And your siblings, your entire family? I trust y’all are alright.
Remember I said I was gon tell you why I’m not doing so great either? that’s because I feel sometimes, that I’m skipping on some of the important aspects of a growing teen. Why? Call me vain, but I want to get all mushy mushy with you and have it all up on my snap chat and my Instagram, I want to be able to blog about you sometimes. Continue reading
