Here is a poem after such a long haitus

Hey Tomodachi’s,

How are you all doing today? Some of you, I can imagine, are not doing all too great when taking into account what has been happening these last few weeks with police britalising and murdering another black person and people once again taking to the streets to protest.

My spoken word performance on Sunday

Hello Tomodachi’s,

Below is the poetry performance I spoke of on Sunday. I read 4 poems that night but below in the video I read only two poems, ‘Wounded’ and ‘Unapologetically black’. At a later time, I will blog about my experience of the night and it is most likely my last performance in the Netherlands. Continue reading

My Frozen Heart

Hello Tomodachi’s,

Happy belated International Women’s Day! I hope that all you wonderful women of the world enjoyed your day yesterday. And on a second note, Happy Birthday to my dear older brother, Cornelius. I hope you are healthy and doing well.

Today I will be posting a poem I recently wrote called My Frozen Heart. I have not posted any poetry or any of my writing on my blog for several months because, honestly, I have been lacking in the creativity department for quite some time. Though it has been a while, I hope you enjoy this very simple poem about when a person’s heart turns cold for many reasons and circumstances they more than likely have no control over.

If you have any comments about it please feel free to write me because I would love to hear your commentaries and criticisms, if there is any. Enjoy and until next time! Take care and have a great day!

My Frozen Heart

My heart used to be so warm,

But now it has turned so cold.

It was frozen over by time,

Frozen by this unforgiving, cold world.

Do I regret it?

Maybe I do, Maybe I don’t,

But there is no longer any hurt

So in the end, I guess, maybe I won’t.

Will my heart ever beat again?

Maybe it won’t, maybe it might,

But after looking at my frozen but beautifully protected heart

I cannot help but think inspite of myself, ‘Oh what a beautiful sight…

Cancelled again…

Hello Tomodachi’s,

TGIF everyone! How are you this Friday afternoon? Some of you may be probably jumping for joy that you do not need to work for the weekends. People like me however, curse our luck to have jobs that require you to still work on the weekends. Although, to be honest I chose this job myself. šŸ¤”šŸ˜‚

Anyway, for those few people who still follow my blog and is interested in my poetry and writing, I have decided to cancel my poetry night I was thinking on doing January 28, until further notice. There are some things that are going on that I need to focus on and prioritise right now and the poetry night event is just not one of them. So until I get my S***t together I will let you know when I will try to host the poetry night.

So, I appologise for all the changing and cancelling I have been doing until now but please be patient with me. Until further notice, I hope you all take care and have a great day.

My Christmas Book Event is not going to happen after all…

Hello Tomodachis,

How have you all been? Do you remember last month I mentioned I was trying to organise my first poetry night for this coming Sunday, December 17th? Unfortately, I will not be able to do it because of a few personal circumstances. These circumstances include but does not limit to lack of financial capability, being busy with my massage job and being busy with my graduation thesis (Yes, I am still working on it and what of it, lol).

I have, however, rescheduled the date for January 28th. So, we shall see how it goes then. I also intend to live stream the video on Facebook, so keep a look out for that as well.

Anywat, until next time and hope you have a great remainder of your day!
