Cyber Group Hug

I am in an upbeat mood today and for no apparent reason. I feel like sharing the smiles. Remember those nonsensical poems people make up with words from a common register? I made up one with Blog titles. Couldn't fit everyone in - forgive me, I guess I'll do another one ... You could try your hands at one too if you so wish...

This is why I write

I am lost at the other end of the world

With no one to talk to but the Singing Blogger

I wish to tell the story of an African girl

A Nigerian Curiosity and of course

My mother's child

Everyday I find

Reasons to celebrate Africa

Yet I know life is what it is

No illusions, forget the mystique

one day we will all become

Ashes and Dust

I have begun the journey

To showing Africa with style

I am the Activist, Generation-Next

I am a Badderchic

I am Miss Balance, your Lady Guide

Yes, I am only letting out

Do you mind my shotmusinz?

Think of them as ero-lyrics

but what they really are

Are the last minute confessions

of a Nigerian drama queen

This is about You, me and a whole lotta s*@!

I speak about Life, love, lust and the in betweens

But whatever I do

It will always be one more step

To getting to know you fully

28 more steps:

Turumarth said...

Cute... but surely THIS wasn't what you meant by you wrote one that I "may like immensely"? :O :D

Naapali said...

Through my poetically tinted lenses
I caught sight of burnt melons
and could no longer be
Aloof and far

Abujamaiden said...

Nice one. took me a few seconds then it hit. Lol!

Rita said...

Awwwww...beautiful...a loving hug from moi...

poeticallytinted said...

@ LG - chopping the knuckle via blue tooth :)
@ turumarth: no, this wasn't what i meant, but i'm still wondering if i should post that here... it is a li'l bit... do you say...? (fake french accent) pornographic...?

@ naapali: WELL DONE! lol.

@ abujamaiden: so glad you like. And it's your first time here, I think... WELCOME. THANK YOU, DALU, ESE, (how do you say thank you in Hausa...?)

poeticallytinted said...

@ RITA: thanks love! (hugging you right back)

Standtall said...

Waohhhhhhhhhhhh u r awesome. I was looking for "Standtall" and I saw "the activist" lol. U r so creative

rethots said...

Sure, there will "always be one more step to getting to know you fully" why we should never get to that point when we believe we (now) know it all.

Mak said...

Beautiful play on words. If you're poetically tainted, then you must be in love with me, without you even knowing it. (I kid too)

poeticallytinted said...

@Solomonsydelle: U r welcome
@Standtall: Thanks babez. wouldn't have written it at all if I couldn't find a place for you!
@rethots: wow, deep words. But then how true.
@Mak: Oh but I am... (wink wink)

Shubby Doo said...

i liked this bcos it shows how words...phrases ...can be strung together to mean something...all it needs is thought

Nice one

Woomie O! said...

what's your mailing address??? can I just use OR do you have a yahoo address??? I need to send you a mail asap. Or even call you sef!

poeticallytinted said...

@woomieo: yup

you can mail me now

poeticallytinted said...

@Shoobydoo: I agree. Random words can turn out to become classy works of art if put together with some thought. Think of two chefs making the same dish with the same quantity of ingredients and one comes out tasting better than the other. I will get there someday. lol.

FFF said...
