Short featured Piece written by Derek Oluwamuyiwa Fodeke-Rodgers ©
“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality…. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”

“When you arise in the morning think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive, to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”
Written by Dr. Olusola O. Bamisile (BB)
I have heard a lot of stories about love
Some amazing and some sad
Earnestly waiting for the day I will start compiling mine
“His voice brings me back slowly but surely to that moment
Your love is just there so you can get a good sleep at night.
It tastes of grease.
It does not feel like home, it feels like faux pas.
From your manipulation i learnt resistance.
That is the time to come.
No more incredulity.
For now, love will be all around taking shape.
My soul prays for rosiness on her face.
I am in love with her forever.
This is where it all begins
A loving heart;
Flourishing with warm passion.
The same heart that was afraid of losing.
Now love is coursing through and healing.
Hopeful for a fellowship that lasts.
It is always good to expect in time.
Love always comes when I want it enough.
My mind had it all wrong.
Love wanted to say something to me in her own words.
Come, let us sit and count the stars.
Love shielding us in the night.
Love defending us in the day.
All that and many more will our days be.
Certain is her love for me, and mine for her!
