2 Years on

According to WordPress, I’ve been on here for 2 years. 

Yay Me.

A very long and inconsistent 2 years. I could come up with a million and one reasons why I’ve been so inconstant, but that’d just come off as excuses. To make up for slacking, I’m ‘gifting’ TNG a few favorite pictures from Eid and hopefully, a facelift. 

Day 1 

Highlight Of The Day

Highlight Of The Day. This chicken was everything.

Poetry Love [Part 3]

Excerpt from Moonlights -

African Womanhood, you have fallen into dung
Deep stinking hole, you are now a caricature
Caught in the madness of modern uniformity
A is B and B is A, acknowledging no difference

To you the color Black equates disgust
Your natural hair straight, a thorn to you
Bleaching creams have replaced the Oils
You burn your hair to Uncle Tom’s Jerry Curse
Look! Your nails long…
