Happiness lies in innocents

One of the many amazing things I have learnt from my mother is how to be happy 😊 it’s pretty easy actually it’s all about understanding yourself and your situation because if you keep on focusing on someone else’s situation and where they receive their happiness impilo izoba a thousand times harder for you, basically…

Make the challenges you accept 🌻

We are always looking for reasons not to give up everywhere else besides from ourselves to which that is where we should be asking questions such as why do we feel like we need motivation and inspiration to not give up, and I realised that we are our biggest treats to our own success and…

Prayed up

It is said that until tears leave you during prayer you haven’t really felt the power of prayer,I beg to differ the only you reason you feel so much power during such prayer is because you have confident in your God. It is not about how loud you shout or how high just or the…

College dropout

For the longest of times I’ve lived my life full of hope with eyes full of joy, often they drown in tears but my heart has always been strong enough to pull back up, I constantly write words of inspiration but today I am filled with depression. I am all alone at a lonely place…

The alarm before the wake up call.

The only reason you are the person that you are is because you have walked in your shoes to which no one can change you, whether or not you are sure about the person you are and/or are becoming but it’s your choice to be that person. People are always looking for something to talk…

Thank you.

We all walk different paths to which non is right or wrong or even that different for the other, at a certain point our paths meet and at that junction we each take something important with us something to which we could have not been able to move foward without and 2018 has brought a…

The voice of the born free

I want to speak as a born free born on the year 2000, things are so different for us; yes we have rights to which we are permitted to exercise but our voices remain unheard because we do not have the number 19-something at the beginning of our year of birth. People are constantly preaching…

Enjoy The Journey

Within the past 3 months a lot has happened in my life I have discovered so much about myself in just 3 months than I have in 18 years, I have met extraordinary people who have brought out the best me and I in them. My opinions about life and love have changed,I had given…

A letter to…..

Even if I may forgiven you I have not forgotten all that you taught me when you thought you were breaking me down, holding me back instead you were pushing yourself deeper into the ground. I hold no grudge for you but all I want and have to say to you is thank you for…

Godfidence 🌻

There’s a song by Joyous celebration that say “uyalalelwa unkulunkulu” meaning that God is talking to us despite the fact that we are hearing him or not, only those who choose to listen will hear it goes on to say “ukulalela kwesinye isikhathi kubiza ukuphila kwethu uyalalelwa unkulunkulu.” Abantu abadala be it in your family…

Follower or Leader

One of the most brutal mistakes one could be subjected to make is not knowing your place in the hierarchy are you a follower who will later be turned into a yes man or a leader who makes way for followers to follow. You will known yourself once you have acquired the knowledge of what…

Patience. How Long Is Long Enough

You know how we are told that patience is a virtue and all the good things come to those who wait,have you ever asked yourself “how much is really enough time to wait?” Not all the things we wait for are worth the wait and what you need to teach yourself is knowing the worth…

How to respond to different types of pressure

Different people respond to pressure in their own way but the most common way is to crack when under pressure and lose all sense of thinking, not all pressure is set out to do the same thing people are failing to differentiate between a pressure that is suppose to build you and envelopes a positive…

Speak It Into Existence !!!

You know how we are always reminded to practice what we preach and take our own advise for a change, well I believe if we can actually carry though these statements whatever we desire and believe in can actually be real. If you want something you have to want it with a pure heart and…

Women of your dreams.

This is the second poem of my recent poetry writing showcase. Hope you’ll enjoy it. Because of the fear I posses I have shut you out, yet you keep knocking at the door step of my heart asking for entry and time and time again I let my mind get lost in your beautiful symphony….

Life without father

The word Father means so much to so many people it holds moments of happiness, sites of protection and an abundant amount of love. To some Father is just a word it has no substantial meaning, the only memories it holds are worth not the moment of remenise. Unfortunately I relate with the latter, I…

To be one.

I recently wrote a series of poems which were initially not meant for sharing but I had figured that they would make for an amazing read. This happens to be poem no.1 as well as a love poem, hope you’ll enjoy the read 😊 You may fail to understand my way of thinking just as…

Follow the footsteps more like create my own.

There is nothing crushing dreams more than the feeling of acceptance, people we aren’t ordinary because we aren’t meant to be but we are constantly being molded into something ordinary, something that is seen as acceptable by the only people we hold near and dear. Family, they put this huge amount of pressure on us…

Limitless limitations

The sky is the limit? We preach these words to ourselves as often as we can and not only to ourselves but to those around us because we know that we have potential to do anything beneath the sky. We are constantly telling ourselves that we are capable of any and everything but when are…

Redefined but not changed

It hasn’t been long since I have found my voice and through finding it I have learnt what it is worth using it on, I keep no secret from you leading to your awareness about the journey I am taking to better myself and make something out of the nothing I am to somebodies. I…

Chase the right dream

Being a dream chaser is an art very hard to master but those who have mastered it knew where to prioritise, not every dream dreamt is meant to come true some dreams should just remain just that dreams. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to be a dream chaser but you need to know…

Believe

I came across a thoughtful question today and it made me question myself and I started finding answers to things that are often forgotten, the little things that seem to matter the least but have such a big impact into everything we do on the daily. I came up with the answer YES. If you…

I am…..

If someone were to come up to me and ask me who am I, it would be one of the easiest question to answer but it would take someone special to understand my answer. On a normal basis I’m just a 17 years old girl who comes from elokshin Esikhaleni KwaZulu Natal, igama ngingu Thandolwethu…

Keep going

Open letter to myself The first thing we are taught when we all eject from our mothers is how to breathe, but for the first time in forever I am finding this simple art very hard to master. I keep on telling myself to inhale and exhale and not lose myself in my own thoughts…

Wathinta abafazi wathinta imbokodo

She’s unbreakable The first time I saw this picture I felt pride not pity because anyone who can survive abuse is a warrior and can not be defeated. She has that fighting spirit and nothing thrown her way can get her down, the saying is true when you do strike a woman you strike a…

Chin up baby girl or the crown slips

Chin up baby girl or the crown slips For a while now I have found comfort in those words, they have turned my frowns upside down and it is safe to say they have change my whole attitude and the way I look at the world my world my own Kingdom for I am the…

Black excellency ✊ #Amandla

So earlier on I was just scrolling on my Facebook reading recent news feed and when I was just bored out of my head inspiration came dancing on front of me. A post by an African guy literally bashing the success of young South African women, having written things that have not been validated and…

Always remember your why

I am a young woman who probably has her whole life ahead of her and with that being said I am looking forward to a prosperous life isn’t everyone looking forward to have the fame and fortune that we all dream of having. You know eventually down along the line the success will come but…

Unicorn by choice 🌺

You know being a unicorn in nowadays is not as appealing to people as it used to be in the years of ours grandparents. Being a virgin is not as easy as it used to be with all the bullying going around and of course the temptations all waiting for a chance to jump in…

Mother’s day without mother

So yesterday was one of the most important popular and celebrated day Mother’s day. We all went out bought presents organised lunches and spa treatments,as for the creative bunch we wrote poems amazing paragraphs and made the most amazing photo collages. It goes without saying that our mother’s felt special and appreciated and as mother’s…

Thank God everyday

If i had to tell you all my past experiences, you would feel sorry for me uqede lapho ukhale mi izinyembezi kunga hlasimula umuzimba ingazi liku shiye lize liphinde libuye. Angazi noma ngingathi it was nothing just a mere phase that was passing, kodwa mangibuka emuva ngiya kubonga konke esengidlule kukho. Out of 17 years…

Slay with your begin. 😋

There’s nothing more heart warming than seeing a child shine in all his/her glory, but nothing is as discouraging as seeing a mother in all her glory slaying left right and centre whereas her child does not match up to her look. As a South African i speak from what i see going on around…

Ambition

Character cannot be developed through in ease and quite. Only through experience of trail and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition enquired, and success achieved. As said by Helen Keller. Things aren’t easy in this world we live in and not each and everyone out there has the privilege of having wealthy parents or…

Better as an island

Over time things change our surroundings change the people we hang out with change and most importantly our thought process changes. We start being innovative, more determined and focused, everything we do becomes so calculated things become so clear and vivid. Goals are made, kodwa ngoba siphila emuhlabeni things well almost never turn out as…

After the great Gatsby

There’s a lot that goes on in one’s mind, in my mind for a matter of fact and every time the mind reaches the point of no return and it starts playing pictures that are so real that what is felt in that place near the heart completely changes. The things that we play around…

It’s Sunday

Bathi in order to be the best you have to stick with the best but esikhathini esiningi we only stick with the best when we’re at the worst and as soon as izinto zisi hambela kahle we get on our high horse umuntu no muntu ashaye isishwapha sakhe akhohlwe ukuthi uphumaphi and how it was…

Dare be different

I have been reading articles from different blogs here on WordPress and if i should say so myself i am absolutely captivated by the contexts of the blogs from WordPress to Facebook to Blogger it is so amazing. I hate myself when i criticise things that i know do not deserve my criticism but sometimes…

Do you

No one can tell you how to live your life and no one can live your life for you, yes someone can live their life through you but your own life gets back tracked. Sekuka ningi sibona abantu, friends and family getting back tracked due to the fact that they want to live another person’s…

Disappointed disappointment

We learn from our mistakes such as putting all your faith where it does not belong and disappointment something that was once a foreign feeling becomes so familiar. It hurts so deep that it hits the core of all your emotions, i can not begin to count why we get disappointed or even how and…

Forgiveness

The Lord’s prayer says Forgive us our trespasses and forgive those who trespass against us. If we say these words unto the Lord should we not believe and live by them, should we not begin by forgiving ourselves for not forgiving those who have caused harm in our lives? Forgiveness is not any easy topic…

Fear of …..

I’m not a big fan of change and i don’t come from a minority but fend for the majority, around 80% of our fears come from change. We convince ourselves that if the slightest thing were to change it would ruin things, disturbed the natural order of how life is suppose to go. It’s not…

Faith.

Faith is not an easy subject to handle but that all depends on which way you look at faith. Be it that you choose to put your faith on achieving a specific goal or hoping to see change on a lover or your family. Whichever way you decide to split your faith and what you…

•Hustle •African •Support

The African child is on a high rise but can not rise without the boost of the foreign land. Quotes are being quoted saying wake up child wake up smell the coffee and stop growing the beans. Nothing comes easy umuntu uyashizila and well sometimes there are those who have it to easy, but no…

Goodbye

Nothing hurts more than having to say goodbye,i have said goodbye more than I would have liked but i guess that goes for anyone. We tend to hold on to things that we are well aware are falling apart because we fear what will happen if we let go, we fear a future that we…

Censorship.

I would rather be an outcast than to be prevented to speak what i believe is the truth. In so many stages of our lives we are told what to say, how to say it, and importantly when to say it. This overlooks the fact that we are living according to the rules of society…

The little things matter

It’s a cliché when we’re told that you don’t really realise a person’s or something’s worth but as cliché as this may be it is the absolute truth. You know the things that we normally take for granted are those which matter the most because when that specific is not there you notice it’s worth….

Love yourself first

Self love has been a topic spoken for ages ,howsoever there is still a minority which remains in dark but is looking for love from another person. This is not a testament to tell about self love as a mandatory factor but just a statement where an average person tells you the truth. Sihlezi sishuma…

Do it yourself

As a lady you know what you need and how you get it done, before a man comes into your life you are able to take care of your face💆, pay for your own hair💇 and other essential expenses.💅👗📱 Now what changes all of the sudden when you get a man in your life, automatically…

Current thoughts

You know there’s this funny thing that always happens, when you think you’ve got everything figured out and finally things will start going in your favour then just like that the most insignificant of things just starts pulling things apart one by one and you realise you’re right where you started. This morning i thought…

Is it love or luv? Categorised

It is clear that we all have our own different opinions about love and when you look at it all comes up to one thing each and everyone of us do still believe in love whether we may admit it or not. Love is still there yazi inkinga ikhephi, that we live in a society…

Is it love or luv?

Love!!! So overrated, overly analysed, honestly love is not there anymore. A lot of you may want to object and hey you’re most welcome to do so, but i will only be telling you a truth that you refuse to accept but a well familiar with. Love is dead, uthando alusekho. Abantu baningi and wonke…

Positive thinking

There is this disease most of us suffer from which goes hand in hand with how we perform on the daily. Abantu abadala hlezi bathi ayikho into ongeke ukwazi ukuyenza if ufuna ukuyenza ,which simply translates to you having the right mindset to get what you want. The hardest task’s are merely created in our…

The art of understanding women

Today i had a little chat with a friend of mine and he asked me something which has be asked by almost every other man who has ever lived and those shall live after all of us. I personally believe if this question is answered directly by whomever it directed to is very simple, but…

Ignorance

I would like to tell you a little story which i find very fascinating. I’m pretty, sure that everyone of you have seen a picture of Greenland and Iceland that they are both what they may appear to due by implication of their names. The story behind their names is very interesting , so many…

You have to decide how much you let out

It has been a norm to talk about one’s feelings in order to heal and move on from things that you can’t change ,things that are not meant for you but are so hard to let go of. It is not everything that you will come across and/or find interest in that is right for…

After i thought about giving up, i thought about self worth

You know what baffles me the most, this one question that no matter how much we try to suppress it, it just pops up again like i mean even when it is not needed, to most it’s just taken as a joke or some harmless banter. Umuntu azothi “do you know what the problem is…

Dear mum and dad

This is for all the single parents out there ,just a piece to show appreciation and the love that flows from the hearts of their sons and daughters . All i have known for most of my life is my mother who has been and still is playing the role of both mother and father…

Inspiration

It all comes from within Inspiration, as simple as it may sound we all suffer from trying to find inspiration. It envelopes from simple questions such as what drives us ,what motivates us and what is the end goal. Unexpectedly we find ourselves setting goals based on what those around us are achieving. This way…

The first of many

My story I haven’t lived long but the past 17 years of my life have shown and taught me incredible things. To most people the opinion of a 17 year old may not matter which is why i am pleased to announce i am turning 18 in 4 months ,in which i guess makes me…
