Padded Beauty

It must be the lensed eyes,
Or the lightened teeth –
Oh it could be lashes you pick from your shirt;
But she’s got the beauty of a doll.Ah – it’s not the silicon beneath
It must be the warmth of the remnant, remember?
So take a step forward, another back – swing with care.
You’ve got the cutest in the hall.Do not wake with the dawn.
Pick out the Peruvian strands from the pillow.
Bask in the fragrance she'd left behind.
Then go on to see her next post on Snapchat.© Jude Ifeme

DEGREE FOR FANCY

One of our least discussed tragedies aside from the notorious decades of military misadventures and the ostensible degradation of our democracy is the ‘miseducation’ of our population by the educational system.Universally, for a person to reach their full potential in a chosen field of study, they need more than just the acquisition of ‘a degree’. They need to have studied in a field of interest. They need passion, passion that is born out of an inherent desire to aspire and achieve in that place of interest, and then, of course, thoroughly prepared teachings, because when the education is wrong, all else follow.All our system seems to offer, in most cases, are mere certification with minimal or no impact; certifications that sometimes translate into nothing beyond the paper they are printed upon. There are engineers who will never invent or simply lack the capacity to understand the rudiments of their profession. There are lawyers who will never be called to bar, and if they are, wou…

Life Can Be A Little Simpler

Life can be just a little less complex. One often wonders why most of the time people take life rather too seriously. It's a fact that things happen. Very bad things. In fact things that largely seem beyond our control. We lose the life we've worked for. We lose our loved ones. Basically, sometimes we go through all shades of dark days, that it would apparently seem as though one had been struck by a streak of bad luck that just wouldn't go away. But what if we unknowingly bring all that upon ourselves? What if all we needed to do all along was to stop, take a deep breath and change our thoughts?

One only needs a trial to realise that heavy burdens can be made light by a simple task of deliberately tampering the way we think and do things;from our work place, to our home and in our relationships, everything will begging to bear different results. The distance between success, of any kind, and what we call failure lies in the navigation of our thoughts. I prefer see life …

Does Sex Make Lasting Relationships?

Image
The sensual touches, the kisses, the deep electrifying thrusts, the bursts of raw desire that you'd never want to end, the explosive climax. Orgasm. SEX is deep. In fact it is the closest to anyone can get to another.However, this rousing sense of intimacy can also be false, momentary and can become alarmingly rueful. If not properly handled, sex can be blighting. One of the most popular approach to love in human evolution is to surrender to the allures of sex; try to understand the other individual through their crotch rather than the many signals they send, presenting their other more stable needs. This is not to say that sex is not a vital need in a relationship. When pursuing a long-term relationship immediate sexual satisfaction should not be the primary focus. When possible, it should be avoided in other to truly maintain the mental alertness to fully access the values and motives of each other.Some people come into a new relationship totally broken by the previous one, they…

Reawakening

Image
I filled my heart with fears
Of right and wrong
For things that are not yet done.I set my feet free from these shoes I have worn,
To shell my soul from the paths
I walk.I feel your pulse once again;
The Phoenix given to death
Shall once reign. Jude Ifeme

Finding The Bond

My strongest addiction as a single was reading. Being alone was bliss and gave me ample time to devour as much literature as one could come by. I had very little care for what happened in other social spaces. 
When I got married some years ago I had fears my lifestyle might have some effect on my family bonding, so I chose family. I found a great partner in my wife and have bonded excellently with my kids. But my love for the books and writing have suffered tremendously.
A few months ago, I decided to return to reading​. If you were a reader you would know that if you've ever read a book that it has a way of reaching back to you whenever you saw the title.
Going through my shelve, I realized I could sense and recollect every book's content by a mere touch; these were old friends indeed. And it struck me I have not bought new ones in a while.
I have returned to reading, having made friends with the kids. I know they must sometimes wonder why Daddy suddenly has to stare for s…
