Fountains of Ink

A feeling of contentment washed over me as hegathered me into his arms

I could have sworn he meant no harm

His sole aim was to cushion me from danger

Gone are the days I was neck-deep into that addictive habit

My meretricious nature prevented me from accepting the titbits

I always enjoyed the company of coxcombs who trooped in and out of my duplex

I was not in the least bothered, in fact, I cared less

My vital statistics were always displayed like foodstuff in a meranti

Suddenly, I came down with the palsy

That plague of a disease checkmated me

I desperately needed something to revive me from the stupor I had found myself in

Alcoholic drinks and drugs were my last resort

I paid no heed to their negative reports

So I soliloquized and asked myself

The Ugly Duckling

The story of the ugly duckling who became the beautiful swan looks like a simple story. But allow me to throw more light into it. You see the little ugly duckling who was actually a swan didn’t know her identity. She found herself among ducks and thought she was a duck and an ugly one for that matter. 

What she did not know is that swans are born ugly and later grow to be beautiful. 

But as she became more matured she figured out her true identity and later became the beautiful swan. 

The same applies to us. Till we figure out our true identity we shall be in the midst of those who bring us pain and torment.

Letters to my future wife interlude

No scorching sun nor freezing cold will stop me on my journey. If you will promise me your heart and love me for eternity. I could bring you rings of gold. I’d even sing you poetry. I would keep you from all harm if you would stay beside me. 

I only want your hand to hold. I only want you near me. To love and kiss to sweetly hold. For the dancing and the dreaming. 

Through all my sorrows and delights I’ll keep your laugh inside me. I’ll swim and sail the savage seas with never a fear of drowning. 

And gladly ride the waves of life if you will marry me.

God’s Love Is Unconditional

There was a time when I used to think that bad things happen to me because of infirmities I committed past😓. I used to think that when we sin, God stops loving us temporally and allows the enemy to bring us pain till we ask for forgiveness👀. It sounds funny to me now.😂Because there was a part of my life where I wasn’t doing any good at all😕 but He still blessed me all the same 🙊and still opened some doors😔🙏🏾. That’s where I realised God’s love does not come with conditions! ☺️💃

“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love😻. Neither death💀 nor life👶🏽, neither angels👼🏽 nor demons👹, neither our fears for today😰 nor our worries about tomorrow😨—not even the powers of hell👹👺 can separate us from God’s love❤️. 

No power in the sky above⛅️ or in the earth below🗻—indeed, nothing in all creation🌏 will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”😊😊😊

‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:38-39‬ ‭NLT‬‬
My favourite verse of the scripture.

“Neither our FEARS of today nor our WORRIES about tomorrow”

Ive always been the anxious type but this part of the scripture is just soothing! 

Have a wonderful wednesday!

Letters To My Future Wife

Letters To My Future Wife by Leonard Selassie. 

Dear Future Wife, 

Sometimes it feels like you will never show up

I smell a fresh breeze of your love 

as though you were much closer,

like the calling fragrance of Close-Up

I know you are nearer than i can imagine;

I can feel your aurora

My heart can sense your’s so call it an emotional radar.

For now, my life is a symphony that is off key.

Cos I’ll be majoring in the minors till you find me.

From there we could switch to acapella,

genuine as a portrait of Mona Lisa

So that only the harmonious notes of your voice could resound in my mind forever,

like a memorized speech 
Men may have given you deception and false truth,

to substitute your bedtime stories and soul food.

But God is raising a new breed of men,

who conform to His will and incommensurable.

He gave us a heart that burns with a fire of passion with true love.

And I promise to illuminate your emotional catacombs to cause infatuation.

I know one day you will come out of darkness, 

into the light, 

And I mean from your unknown identity, 

to the known to bear the fruits of love we would share 

But if you are already in my life,

appreciate my love and the treasured mind I have for you 

I love you and will wait,

chaste and praying every moment that the Lord fills your heart

with a divine love to love me as your only husband.





Fake People

Life is full of fake people. It is so easy to believe someone when they tell you exactly what you want to hear. When a person shows you who they really are believe them for the first time. Some people are only nice for their own convenience. You have to distance yourself from these people otherwise they will hang around as long as you let them. The type of people who only call when they need something or come around when its beneficial to them. Not everyone has your best interest at heart.

Sometimes the one you would take a bullet for ends up behind the person behind the gun. 




Have a splendid day 🍹☺️

God bless you 
Leonard Selassie ☺️

How To Love God

“That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.””‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬
When I read this scripture today I quickly proclaimed that I loved God! 😅

But the question my spirit asked me was “What does it mean to love God? How does one love God ?”
I guess it goes back to the 

scripture where God said if we truly love Him we will keep all his commandments. 

The commandments that you and I flaw at least one of them. 
So in as much as we may want to love God wholeheartedly, we should check and make sure our lifestyle do not contradict his commandments. And also let be HUMBLE. 



Good Morning🍇🍌🍒🍉

There Is Hope

I’ve always been the optimistic type who does his best to see the best in everyone or in almost every situation. I won’t say its faith I just tell myself ‘things could be worse’ but luckily they are not. And besides there were worse people in the bible who found redemption and others were in situations far worse than what you and I are going through. What I am driving at is that we have to learn to be optimistic and hopeful. 

What ever your shortcomings may be, just keep trusting that your situation will be better eventually. 
““Even a tree has more hope! If it is cut down, it will sprout again and grow new branches.”

‭‭Job‬ ‭14:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬
Good Morning! 

Have a beautiful day.

A True Woman

“O my son, O son of my womb, O son of my vows, do not waste your strength on loose women, on those who ruin kings.
Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies. Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭31:2-3, 10-12, 30‬ ‭NLT‬‬


 Enjoy your day

Leonard Selassie
