She Speaks

Does my worth lie within my child bearing hips? Or better yet is it found in the perceived juiciness of my lips? Do my periods make me dirty or simply make you uncomfortable? Because I’m yet to read the story of where Jesus washed his cloak after SHE touched HIM. Does my dress sense mean…

The Blacker the Berry

  They say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice, I say the blacker the man, the faster they shoot. Sweet, dark fluids cover the pavements, The blood of another man, He’s not a berry or a hashtag, But a father and a brother, a friend and a lover, A lover in a world…

borrowed time.

I am writing this at around 1am and for me, this is a really big thing (don’t worry Joshuanne, I’ll schedule the post for the morning lool). I haven’t written a post in a while, yet alone a personal one. But as I am struggling to sleep and I have this idea in my head,…

Everybody needs somebody.

“One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” – Proverbs 18:24 To be honest, I am quite a reserved person. I’m the type of person that you could talk to for ages and feel as though you know me without realllllyyyyy knowing me. It’s…

Overcoming with some sips of Lemonade.

The first album that I ever owned was “The Writing’s on the Wall” by Destiny’s Child. They provided many of the anthems to my childhood. As a group, they taught me the importance of friendship, the importance of self-worth, the importance of belief. Songs like ‘Girl,’ made me scared to grow up. They were independent…

The Glory of Christ

“The glory of Christ is the resurrection but you can just skip the Cross.” He cried out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” With the nails pierced in to His hands and feet. With a crown of thorn placed upon His head. “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” Sentenced to dead by the very…

Follow You

Last Friday, I probably heard the greatest song of all time! One of my favourite musicians is Christon Gray. I’ve been waiting for his new album to be released for what feels like forever. Then last Thursday I got a notification on Spotify saying that Gray released a new album. YESSSSSSS! Then I clicked on the…

A letter from the Glass House

A while ago I remember seeing a quote, that really got me thinking. I tried to find it but I wasn’t able to so I’ll just paraphrase. It went along the lines of “people throw stones from glass houses, the media makes a profession out of it, after a while we become a nation of…

So what’s next?

Guyyyyyyss! I have one semester left and then I will officially be a graduate. It is so strange to even think about. These last three years have flown by so quickly it’s unreal. Although I’m happy to have nearly finished, I’m definitely going to miss it. More than anything, university has meant security. I’m not…

Lessons learnt along the way.

Time is soooooo precious. Make time for the people you love. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have anything to wear or any money to do anything extravagant, just spend time with them. Sometimes people just need your attention. Love God, love yourself and love others. Let go of any grudges that you may have….

A Letter to My First Love

I remember when I first met you. I was hesitant but my fear slowly turned into eagerness. The more I learnt, the more I wanted to know. I’ve known you for a while now and forgive me for thinking that I know all that there is to know about you. I’ve read your letters over…

The myth of a perfect Christian

The truth is, there is no such thing as a prescription to becoming a perfect Christian. How you walk out your faith and belief in Christ is and should be different than your neighbours. Just because she doesn’t drink, party, wear trousers or have piercings, doesn’t make her better than you.  And just because you…
