A Thousand MegaPixels

The following is a featured piece written by Bonsu Adjei-Arthur © All rights reserved


Arthur’s Introduction to this piece

I have looked at how my world has changed so much and how creative we have become and the extent of magic we can pull up with our creativity from our devices and everything. However, I also felt the need to talk about the downside of all these great things and how people don’t fit. I played the part of the architect generation and how I am happy to see the delusion, the reality and all the glamour of everything and how it seems to all play into my grand plan. As such, I titled it. A THOUSAND MEGAPIXELS. Enjoy. Continue reading A Thousand MegaPixels

A New Calling

Written and composed by: Destina Godwin Ekekeh ©


On a fizzy cold day, while taking my conventional morning ride,

Cycling down the usual path at a speed faster than the speed of light,

The seemingly unending lane with trees and leaves cascading through,

With the constant quiet and lonely pace,

Left with my wildest imagination, Continue reading A New Calling

Lyrics of the Month #1

In Over My Head (Crash Over Me) by Bethel Music ©


[Verse 1]
I have come to this place in my life
I’m full but I’ve not satisfied
This longing to have more of You
And I can feel it my heart is convinced
I’m thirsty my soul can’t be quenched.
You already know this but still
Come and do whatever You want to. Continue reading Lyrics of the Month #1

True Laughter

Have you laughed? I mean really truly laughed.

You know the type that starts from your feet making your toes curl. That one that travels up your legs making them shake like a leaf in the wind.

That laughter that boils up in your belly like steam in an enclosed space looking for a way out. That one that literally causes you pain until you open your throat and let it all out and open.

That type of laughter that bursts out like a gush of wind producing a sound which for that moment in time brings with it an amnesia of all the things causing you pain and worry. 

So tell me. Have you ever truly laughed?

~ The Real Love ~

10 year old poem written by Dr. Khalid Umer.


“People say love is blind

But I say it is kind.

People say love is mad

But I say it is not bad.

People say love is sour.

But I say it makes you pure.

People say love breaks a man.

But I say it makes a man.

I say there is great joy in love.

People say it brings you close to insanity.

People say love is to love a boy or a girl.

But I say love is to love humanity.


Khalid Umer is a PhD scholar studying emerging technologies. An electrical engineer by profession, a poet and writer as a hobbyist.

ABUSE & MANIPULATION

A Write-up by Humphery Adun


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.

Lover, Savior

Feature post: Write up by Reynard


Now, I don’t only get to call HIM savior. I get to call HIM lover. I get to call HIM my very best friend.

I know a lot of people may look at this post and wonder what I smoked to get me this high. Truth is it’s HIS presence-

It’s a whole different kind of oxygen.

The type that comes when GOD himself draws you so near to HIM you can practically breath HIM in.

So close to the point HE feels like HE’s closer than your skin.

A place where HIS love for you echoes so loud it drowns out all the noise and opinions this world scream and that voice of condemnation-hahaha

It’s silenced completely to the point where you know beyond a shadow of doubt that with HIM is where you belong.

I’ve found my home in the heart of God.

And if you’ve ever wondered what the walls look like, just know it has your face, my face and the faces of the whole world tattooed throughout its entire parameter.

You may be one of those people who has always looked for a home in places you were never meant to fit in.

….. come as you are. GOD’s heart remains as open as the arms of JESUS the Christ that died for you on that cross……

Peace.

~Perspective Shift~


Woman! Oh Woman! thou art precious!
Everywhere and anywhere
In different shapes and shades,
Nevertheless, the most unique living creature on this planet!

Some see her as an object
While some see her as a life force.
For she lays seamlessly at the heart of existence;
The world itself will be null and void without her.


Your perspective about her is directly proportional to your experience
She is a life giver yet deadly,
Pleasure giver yet a pressurizer,
It all depends on you.

Man! Oh Man! It is time for your perspective to shift.
It is time to behold not just her physical beauty, but the workings of her very being.
It is time to see the potential, creativity, and gifts.
The uniqueness, the greatness and the brilliance within her that shines like the sun.


Love your woman and you will find true joy.
Speak life into her and see life in yourself.
Give her all your attention and enjoy a life of undiluted peace.
Bless her and enjoy a blissful home.

One man said ‘But variety is the spice of life’.
Yet, he has failed to realize that real variety is in one woman
For a woman can be likened to this planet,
Your location determines your experience and allocation.

Have you toured the world of your woman?
Have you enjoyed the variety she has to offer?
Have you been through her skies, seas, and dry lands?
Before you make your conclusion about her, travel the length and breadth of her planet.
