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…

He said. She said.

Last night I read one of the most heartbreaking and eye opening letters. It was the letter of Brock Turner’s victim. She has been assigned the alias of Emily Doe, but to be perfectly honest, I don’t even need to know her name. Although she wrote the letter based off of her experience, what is so heartbreaking…

Not every Christian guy is the one!

Alright, so he prays for you and the more you see him, the more he encourages you to draw nearer to God. But have you ever stopped to think that maybe he is not the one? When you meet a girl who does the exact same thing you don’t start plotting to be her new…

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…

Just because she doesn’t drink, party, wear trousers or have piercings, doesn’t make her better than you.  And just because you…

When God is like “lool…no”

“More of you, less of me.” “Guide my steps Lord.” “Please show me your will for my life.” “Give me an obedient heart, so that I will follow whatever it is that you have planned for me.” “I surrender it all to you Lord, have your way.” I’m pretty sure that at some point in…

Ode to the selfish years!

Do you ever stop to think and reflect and then realise just how much things have changed? It seems as though in the middle of all the dreaming and planning, life happens. Everyone around you is different, old friends have become distant memories and you are now surrounded by new people who you are making…

Terms and Conditions

I heard an interesting question the other day. It was about whether or not our love for God is conditional or not. As I sat there I began to think. There have been many conditions that I have given to God to try and get Him to prove Himself to me. Over time, the conditions…
