Happy Mother’s Day!
How do you describe a mum?
Someone who births you
Leading you through life
Protecting you — sometimes excessively😊
Wanting to shield you from life’s pain, challenges, and reality
How can you equate a mother’s love
So delicate, yet protective
“The love of a mother is the…
My Queen, My Mother!
“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.” — — Abraham Lincoln
Mother….you are precious
Resilient despite difficulties
Hopeful beyond pain
You put my needs before yours
My welfare always in your heart
Every Moment in Life is Precious!
Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough
A heart filled with gratitude attracts so much good.
Little things that make life great, interesting and so precious.
Spend time with families, laugh your heart out at every tiny joke. Notice every moment….That’s what makes life PRICELESS.

A Free Spirit!
I wish that life holds no restriction
That I will spread my wings and fly
Soaring through the sky
And feel the rush of the wind
Admiring the sky blue color
As I feel the force of the ocean below me
I wish I could overcome my…
Nigeria….my sweet homeland
My birthplace…my roots…my identity…
Far away from home
Yet the thirst for my home remains
The home of my ancestors and history
In my blood flows generations of history
Tears, joy, laughter, sadness, sorrows, and happiness of generations before me
That is how deep my root goes…
I embrace my homeland and my root
It contains a vast history of knowledge and pride
And a source of history for generations yet unborn….
God bless Nigeria….you may be experiencing difficulties, but you are yet to show the world who you are. The world awaits your greatness — Chinyere Okoh

For as long as I can remember
I have the belief that there is a higher power at work.
The power of spirituality and getting in tune with your spiritual self can determine a lot in terms of success, relationship, and self-love.
Growing up in Nigeria
And being surrounded by…
The ability to exercise self-control
To gain dominance over your emotions and channel them for the right purpose determines your power
Over situations, over relationships, our your life….
Sure, there comes a…
Finding the strength to silence inner criticism and define your self-worth
It is strange how we compare ourselves to others
Constantly looking for measures that indicate we are worthy
Setting up measures that we think are important
Redefining ourselves in the eyes of others
But tell me…. How do you…
Going through this prompt, I chuckled…..
I am guilty of multitasking and being easily distracted
In the age of social media and technology
It is easy to get distracted
And sometimes lose focus of our goals
But the topics and interests we surround ourselves with determines what we focus on
