A Few Suns

“Although some stars burn brighter than others, those other dimmer suns are not to be underestimated, for they burn too. They burn deep, they burn hot, they burn blue.”

Severe Battles

“The most severe battle must be the one where you need to fight against becoming that which is already ingrained within your system since childhood.

The one where you must do things differently.”

Her Beauty

Every lady has her own appeal…

Her beauty lies in the details.

Only those who have genuinely searched for it can find it.
Only those who have found it can try to comprehend the beauty that is her creation.

Only those desperate to shelter it are deserving enough to grab onto the gold that holds the power to decorate one’s destiny.”

~ Sandra C. Obiora

If You Need It, Get It

“If you need it, and you can get it, get it. If you simply want it but do not need it, think more about how useful that thing will be to your overall advancement as a person spiritually, physically, socially, psychologically, intellectually. Also, it is really okay to treat yourself from time to time when you have been successful. The trick however is to first achieve something so tangible for which you cannot help but reward yourself even a little bit.”

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?

One Day of Hardwork

“If attaining a bright and successful future required just one full day of focus and purposefulness, everyone would be wildly successful.

However, the sad truth is that success requires and involves multiple, and sometimes miserable moments of little yet correct choices.

Success is really just the sum of usually small but mighty decisions made and then executed.”

~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.

In Twenty Days

cropped-pexels-photo-1070383.jpeg

“In twenty days, the crowded Earth became as empty as Mars.

In this time, the moon became blood, and the sand became red. 

For the one I knew so well,  became the one I know no more. 


The thoughts I used to daily think, are now the thoughts I think no more.

The feelings I used to dwell on, are now the things I feel no more.

The plans we then did make, are plans I have no more.


For in just twenty days, the population of earth was traded for the wild storms of Mars.

The false comfort of ‘friendship’ turned into the 

Magnificent brilliance and hum of a truly silent planet.”
