  • Shower Scene

    Shower Scene

    From sundown to sunrise, we stay on the grind. Rainfall or sunshine, we put in work. We clock in and don’t clock out. But from month to month, nothing to show for all the effort. What really is the cost of success? Is this why they say ‘Don’t work hard, just work smart’?  But the…

  • Our Children

    Our Children

    Useless parents never cater to the needs of their children but always try to share in the glory of kids whenever they achieve anything worthwhile. Don’t you see how quickly politicians rush to congratulate laurelled sports personalities or entertainers? They try to steal from every man’s glory but never make a positive impact on anyone’s…

  • Purple Emojis 💜🍇☂️

    Purple Emojis 💜🍇☂️

    Anywhere between red and blue, that’s where my heart is. Never too scared to wear my heart on my sleeve or sieve the compliments. Working hard towards understanding colours.

Suddenly, tears roll down the cheeks of Ugomma, her son, and daughters. These repentant fighters are terrorists that have been rechristened to “repentant…

    The Uncomplicated Radicals, Other Musings, and a Loop by DJ BLACKJOY

    The Uncomplicated Radicals  Sometimes, I think about the road on the path of revolution and how people are always convinced – looking from the outside in – that one has to be brainwashed before becoming a “radical”. I’d love to know if it makes sense in terms of psycho-analyzing people’s – anyone’s – actions while…

  • Permutations & Mind-games

    Permutations & Mind-games

    Some claim you are always shying away from responsibilities. Others just don’t seem to understand the paradigm shifts from generation to generation. People assume you don’t want the best for yourself without knowing how much you wish for the best. They only project what they think but forget you bear the thoughts and do the…
