Reality Check

Indeed a reality check is needed.

WELCOME TO IN AMEHS WORDS

Over the past few weeks, I have observed with keen interest the number of advocates suddenly springing up on the popular social media site, we all love to call Twitter.

Now as much as this is commendable, I cannot help but feel this is just like every other trend that occurs on twitter, the popular band wagon effect if you will.

Twitter being the virtual world it is, allows for everyone to develop an alter ego and appear to be genuinely concerned with various topics plaguing our society as we know it, and in this case am referring to domestic violence and rape.

For the whole of 2013, a day never went by and you would not see either a news report or newspaper headline informing us of yet another case of rape, domestic abuse, and child molestation.

These reports were read, and treated as news, the papers, blogs and…

My eyes were bloodshot, a far cry from what you would expect from a new bride. I stood up from the bed, stretched and went to the wardrobe to get my make up bag.

 

Subtlety is the key and I know that. No one expects a “just waking look” to show traces of makeup. So I applied a little foundation to conceal the bags under the eyes and a hint of black eye shadow to give a smoky look. I returned the kit to the wardrobe, placed myself carefully beside Jite. I paused for a minute to adjust some settings on the camera. Shutter sound and flashlight off, I placed my head on Jite’s chest and took the picture.

 

He didn’t rouse from sleep at all. I understood that he needed to sleep after the stressful day we had. I used the picture…

Is your school uniform neat and pleasing to the eyes?

It should look comfortable for you and the eyes of your audience too.

It should suit the occasion. Don’t feel shy to find out from your teacher or the organizers how others will be dressed. Will it be school uniform or  formal/ informal dressing?

It is expected that general rules for students would  make you avoid ,make-up,special hair-do and glittery ornaments. The simpler and neater the better!

The cry of a Senator – Let us marry your daughters – @gbengaosowe

Oh but they won’t let us marry their daughters. Those ones are sacred.

AAABORODE!

Protest in India against child marriage

Let us marry your daughters, the rich men say

The ones whom the little mound on their chest grow bigger day by day

We see them swing their beads-laden waist as they move in groups on their way to the stream,

Let us marry your daughters and you shall have pipe-borne water as you have always dreamed

Corrugated roofs over your heads, heads of cattle in your fields, we shall supply

All we ask is the hands of your girl-children to be our bride

 

Let us marry your daughters, the Senators say

Those ones we have kept out of school by our greed, our wives let them be

We have money to spend on their every need,

The best hospitals for their care, the most dedicated of maids at their behest

No more lack of food, we promise to treat them well

All we require is their juvenile bodies…

Damilare Awe: Thoughts Of The Troubled

AAABORODE!

image

Thousands of innocent lives have been lost,
Obviously still not enough to cover the cost.
The reaper gets what he wants,
And if he doesn’t his image haunts.

The scum of the country are left to
cause trouble,
While we keep living
in an ignorant bubble.

Not wanting to believe the things we hear,
But when crime is up all we do is yell here and there.

We talk with all our strength and anger
but actions we never take,
Hoping one realizes all the words we spew are fake.

But life moves on…

Again the innocent shall suffer,
The rich will get richer,
But for the poor it just gets tougher.

Society is in shambles, we continue to go down hill,
But the truth shall be ignored,
Wiped from our mind with the ingestion of a distraction.

For how long will this go on?
For how long will the…
