It's all about You - Somto Okeke

Remove the rags of ignorance,                                                 
Put on the apparel of knowledge.

Turn off the light of stupidity,
And let the sun of wisdom shine down on you.

Do not wear the shoe size of stagnation,
Let your foot wear have the spirit of motion.

Do not look at the clock of the past,
Let your watch be tuned to the present,
And repair it if it doesn’t extend to tomorrow.

Let your eyes become the eye,
Not staring at the world,
But focusing at your world.

Do not talk if you are not sure,
For all talk but not all speak,
For all hear but not all listen.

As you wake up every morning,
And you realize you are still breathing,
And you do not know what to do,
Ask yourself, would I rather be dead or alive?
If it is the latter good for you.
If it is the former, see a pastor!

Just 4 words!

A message of hope
Straight from above
Piercing through the soul
Revealing mysteries untold

An idea is born
A solution is proposed
An offspring of wisdom
To be nurtured by knowledge

Your ideas shall sprout
Yes! They shall doubt
With resilience you shall shout
“I’m born to stand out!”

They’ll give you reasons to give up
You’ll give them reasons to shut up!
They’ll say you a’int perfect
Well, you really never told them you were

Many times you’ll quit trying,
Sometimes you’ll prefer crying,
Would this become a reality?
No mortal can tell, only divinity.

But then again you shall rise,
Keeping focused, eyes on the prize,
Because few years from now,
After you passed the test of time,
This is what shall be:

You shall rise on your feet,
And they will rise for you – applauding,
As you gracefully walk down the aisle,
With just 4 words you have to say.

As tears fill your eyes,
Emotions welling up…
You look round and see faces,
Some that once doubted your idea,
Some that said you may never get there,
And forcefully slow shall the words flow
Just those 4 words as you humbly say:

Tatashe (I'm Hot & ur Not!)


She’s the pride of the African woman,
Dreaded by many, dared by few but loved by all,

Rumor has it; she’s brought grey haired men to tears,
Alongside her many children,
She carries out her duty without compromise.
Red as Danger,
And Hot as fire!

Children scream at her arrival,
She’s the nightmare of the white man,
She brings tears to your eyes,
And you can’t even feel any emotion,
Few have learnt the art of her gimmicks,
Trying hard to blend with her split personality,
Red as Danger,
And still Hot as ever!

Oh! You can never resist the slim red beauty,
Adorned with grace in her green wig,
Who knows, she could have been the cause of the 2 World Wars…
You should never underestimate what this beauty can do.



                                    From Tatashe with Love…XOXO

I could tell you I love you a million times,
And time would pass after a zillion chimes,
I could hold ur hands…look at you and smile,
And you would cherish the moment – really loving my style,
You’d feel good…and I’d be in a cool mood,
Like Robin…Oh Yeah! His surname’s Hood,
so my fair lady, all these will be sweeter,
If we play round love’s circumference – having God @ the center!
