2022 Here We Go!

It is always such a wonder when a new year comes around. It is a marvellous thing to be alive. To be breathing, to be thinking, to be feeling, to be sane.

Things may not always be perfect but it is incredible that we have strength in our bones, shelter over our heads, and food to eat.

Looking back at 2021, we see the grace and goodness of God layered heavily on each day.

Thus, for this new year, let’s live in gratitude. Let our testimony always be

“This is a minute, an hour, a day, a week, a month, a year, and a life that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. “ Amen


HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM APOETSBRAIN UNIVERSE! IT’S A YEAR OF GRATITUDE, PEACE, AND GREAT UNENDING JOY!

Beautiful in their own fins and uniforms.  Swirling, gliding, socializing. Each design so unique. Unapologetic for existing and so alive. These are the usually forgotten water dwellers.

Life’s purpose

“Life’s purpose and the perfect rice cooker have similarities. A rice cooker can boil other dishes but it is bought because it is best at cooking rice besides other things it can do. There may be other rice cookers out there, yet, you bought the one you have in your kitchen because it shined to you. It just fit.


You have been using it all this time and for years because it has been fulfilling it’s key purpose of boiling rice to your satisfaction. The rice cooker that does not know it is a rice cooker, or one that thinks it is a potato boiler will simply never be good enough. Just like this, we all shine when we know, understand, and work at our life’s purpose. Find it, focus on it, work at it.”

The Missing Game

th (1)

*Note: This poem has been published with the New York Public Library Zine 2017 ©


It begins as a creeping thought. Like an itch.

Easy to ignore, difficult to locate.

It graduates into an illness, and soon your mind is stuck on replay.

Like a swarm of butterflies with needles in their mouths.

Grand Hands

“There comes a time when you realize that your life is no longer in any man’s hands. Not in your parents, or your siblings, or friends, not in yours, but in the hand of God who does as He wills. And then you stop fighting and kicking against the pricks. You gain that smoother Iife of peace, and surrender. Then all you can say is:

“Not my will Lord, but yours be done.”

The Faces of Spring

“Whenever spring comes, Hope springs up alongside these flowers.

Every flower unique in its own way. Sharing its beauty with the world. As if to say ‘Cheer up. Spring is here!”

As the trees come alive with flushes of greens, yellows, and reds, my spirit comes alive with vigour.

With spring comes a new peace and tranquility.

With it comes a heart of gratutude for all that God has made.

Abuse & Manipulation

A Write-up by Humphery Adun 2018 ©


Humans are relational beings; and thus, we owe our existence to the ability to cultivate relationships that sustain our mental, physical, emotional and psychological tranquility. In every relationship, there are roles played by each correspondence, and these roles are defined by several factors; age, position, class, family, culture, spirituality, and tradition. This plays out in such a way that it creates dominant and subordinate(dependent) individuals in the relationships. Interestingly, as adults we play both roles of being both dependent and dominant at the same time, across different relationships, and thus there is a diffusion of a learned trait from a relationship circle to another one; and this goes on and on, creating a tangle of relationship traits.

I Lived!


An Apoetsbrain Original Written 3/04/2020 © All rights reserved.


I lived. I lived. I lived. 

I know that eight billion others exist alongside me. 

I know that others have come and gone before me. 

I know it has all been said before in different ways and phrases.

I know that in the picture of space and time we are smaller than a spec.


Yet this is the beauty of our humanity.

That we can cycle through life enjoying what has always been enjoyed. 

Thus, I will not get lost in mundane thoughts. 

I will not get stuck in mediocrity.

One and all eight billion will know! 

I lived. I lived. I lived!
