For me, poetry, is always an attempt at exploring emotion & language intricately. Here I tried to explore my fascination with the word “Fortitude” & its correlation with weakness. How one can’t seem to use it without acknowledging the lurking shadows of a weakness, a pain or a need; for healing, for forging ahead or moving on. I hope you draw meaning from a line🙂, or 2 😀 or the entire piece 😁. & Here’s to a fab weekend ahead 🥂✌🏾 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #yomithepoet #literarypathways #wordarmy #wordportrait #fortitude #tgifriday #drafts #sayingsandquotes #poetryoftheday #poetrychallenge #poetrycommunity #communityofpoets #igpoetry #igpoetrysociety #igpoem #igpoet #igwriter #igpost #igpoetry #naijaart #naijacreatives #naijaconnect #nigeria

BATA (knack Kiwi toney red polish to shine am... then begin waka like Queenking 👑 wey you be ) – An outlet of the Footwear and Accessories Manufacturing and Distribution (FAMAD ) Plc, formerly BATA – I read SAP (Structural Adjustment Program ) was partly responsible for the decline of this once famous enterprise, coupled with mismanagement & alleged fraud. Government policies or the lack of it has been traced to have cut short many businesses in naija e.g Nigeria Lamp Company, Dunlop Nig ltd, PAN, Bata ( Lennards Nig ltd ). Etc – If we’ll eventually get it right remains to be seen. . . . . #yomithepoet #literarypathways #wordarmy #throwback 😍 #bata #nostalgiaa #colored #personalblog #photoblog #poetryblog #blackandwhite_photos #amateurphoto #amateurphotographers #retoucher #memories 😍 #nigeria #nigerianbrands #naijaart #naijaphotographer #naijaenterpreneur #portraitshots #canoncna #shotoniphone #shotoniphonex

& this .... my friend, is 1 of the 2 (so far discovered ) suspended lakes in the whole world & it’s in my dear country 🇳🇬 Nigeria (this is named Iyake ). – Captivating stories were told, rich & gripping, such as the endless depth of the lake, no one who has dared to step foot or take a dip in it has ever come out of it (heard attempts have been made by divers securely strapped & fastened to chains, then lowered down but the strap come up empty ), there’s also a foot🦶sized hole a few meters from the lake that’s cordoned off, called Agbómofúnyàké if you put leg inside, it will *conference call/teleport* you into its mother’s (Iyake ) womb straighttt!!!!!. – The locals believe the water has hidden & healing powers... & some other benefits. – This is surely an experience I’ll LOVE to relive; the next time more attentively than the first & possibly accompanied by likeminded & familiar faces – Between, runners dey play for where hikers dey abeg... first few steps of this ascent & I was already panting like a brat adequately indulged inadequately by my runner parents. – ABSOLUTELY A HUGE & AN UNTAPPED TOURISM POTENTIAL – Would you like to see the sunset from this view... ? oborichocho!!!! *Scratches head* . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #yomithepoet #literarypathways #wordarmy #personalblog #natgeoafrica #nigeria #naija #naijaart #canoncna #celebrateafrica #adoawaye #placestovisitinnigeria # #heritage #heritagenaija #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshots #lakes #traveldiary_aroundtheworld #suspendedlake #wanderers #yourshotphotographer #shotoniphone #amateurphotographers #naturephotography 📷 #iamatraveler

Registered Observation: Stepping Out Of The Shadows. – I recently learned the moon is always somewhere in the sky, all through day & night. We just don’t see it. Largely cos’ of the grandness of the sun’s light or the darkness of the night’s skies. I guess it wasn’t having any of it on this day ☺️ . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Here, I made an attempt to reconstruct some of the lessons I learned from my primary school teacher (Mr. Mensah ) & by extension this was a tiny shallouutt to him & all the super Ghanaian teachers of the ‘80s & early ‘90s – Himself & Mr. Aswani were my favorite teachers evuuurrrrr!!! They were both my school & lesson teachers at different points & they were great teachers, extremely patient ones. Looking back, they surely had big influences on me. But this, is about Mr. Mensah, my favorite of all time. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #yomithepoet #literarypathways #wordarmy #personalblog #ghanaian #teachers #poetrycommunity #naijawriters #spilledinkpoetry #writers #igpoem #africanartist #poetrylovers #communityofpoets #igpoet #reposting #naijacreatives #globalpoetrycult #artist #naija #naijawriters #artofwriting #artofpoetry #poetrychallenge #ghana 🇬🇭 #poetic #igpoetsociety #lessonlearned #igpoetry

Still on exploring water writing themes, this time an old piece, that attempted to draw contrasts and minute yet grand distinctions between perception & perspective & How reality/experience/age/time often shapes our notion about occurrences into totally different inferences from what we thought it to be. . . . . . . #yomithepoet #literarypathways #wordarmy #personalblog #poetryoftheday #poetryblog #naija #naijawriters #spilledinkpoetry #writers #igpoem #africanartist #poemsofig #portraitstream #portraits #naijacreative #portraits_vision #artist #naija #naijawriters #artofwriting #nextvisualportraits #artofpoetry #portraitmood #abstractwriters #poetic #igpoetsociety #water #poetrylovers #poetizer
