The writings of an amateur poet .......( 1).

Different strokes for different folks..........

There was a time I actually thought I was meant to be a poet 😂😂😂😂.
This was partly because I wasn't much of a talker and I preferred to put my thoughts into writing. The other reason I wanted to write poems was because of a dear friend of mine, Abimbola. She's an all-rounder writer. Poems,  articles, short stories and even novels she never completes 😀.

I just wanted to be like her, but I found soon enough that everyone is unique. Her gift is different from mine so I can't be like her. But no worries, it was just a matter of discovering what exactly my gift is [I'm still working on that ].

He said he'll wait for her, besides the movie I was watching seemed interesting.  I went back to my seat (the 3-seater nobody dares share with me) to continue the movie. He settled down beside me (like there weren't other sitting spaces available).

 Getting married is certainly a very crucial step in the life of a person. It's one thing you can't afford to rush into. Unfortunately,  that is exactly what happens in our society today. ''Better go and marry'', that's every parents national anthem once the lady reaches her mid-twenities.
Although this is true for both sexes,

I AM A WOMAN!! - author unknown 
I am a woman, so what?

I get into an argument with a man,  he slaps me, I feel the pain, yet they tell me I provoked him. I should have been quiet,  I should have been patient.  I should apologize to him.

And he murdered her innocence...........

Rape is one of the most degrading, devastating emotional events that can happen to a person. It's no longer news that the evils of rape leave a sour taste in the mouth. Although the victims of rape have in recent times come to include guys,
