A Letter to My Younger Self.

Expressing my thoughts through writing.

Dear Young Lindsay.

Today I am taking a break from my busy schedule to write to you, something which I should have done a long time ago.

Believe in yourself Lindsay. I missed so many opportunities because I doubted myself. Learn to believe in yourself even if you have thousands reasons to doubt yourself. Give your best shot and don’t let failure hold you back.

Travel a lot. The passport you have , make use of it, don’t let it expire without seeing other parts of the world. Exploring will open your mind. Seize every opportunity you get and take lots of pictures for memories.

Every day remind yourself you are beautiful and wonderfully made. Do not let anyone define your beauty from their own perspective, you are a diamond, born to shine.

Enitan: Episode 2

"You should have aborted me when you had the chance!" Enitan shouted back. Her mouth fell open, as she staggered, holding on to the bed for stability. She felt like she had been hit by a boulder. "What did you say?" She stammered. "I know why you married dad."

Enitan: Episode 1

Enitan tilted the edge of her beret to cover her face and hoped nobody would notice. The wound above her left eye was more pronounced now that it was daylight. She had her face to the floor as she rushed to her seat, oblivious to the figure approaching her. They collided just as she got … Continue reading Enitan: Episode 1

What about me?

I was so stoked to be reconnecting with Jola. After ten years of separation, e-running into her was the least I expected would ever happen. It had felt like forever; not knowing where she was, what she was doing or if she was alive altogether. Jola and I had been best friends for 7 years … Continue reading What about me?

Bella (part 2)

I ran the blunt edge of the knife across her cheek. “All Dayo did was take in your drunken ass for the night and you decided to repay his good for evil. You didn’t just break us up, he’s now dead because of you.” “Bella plea…” I didn’t let her finish her sentence as I stuffed the sock back in her mouth.

Bella (part 1)

Pulling out the diamond ring off my finger, I threw it at him as he stumbled while catching it. “Bella, please. Don’t do this.” “Go give that to Irene. Isn’t that what she has always wanted?”... “Goodbye, Dayo.” I stormed angrily towards the door, pushing him out of the way. “And don’t follow me or I swear to God....” I screamed at him.

How To Get Away With Murder

Ella looked around the room, eyes clouded with tears. Women in their various sizes and ages wailed. The men simply shook their heads and sighed. The unasked question remained plastered on everyone’s face. What happened to such a vibrant, young man? Five nights ago, Tobi had driven out of the house in anger after they … Continue reading How To Get Away With Murder

The Silence We Eat: Oyindamola Shoola

We’ve been made to believe that silence is golden when it’s only gold plated. For beneath that shimmery surface are varieties of colours telling one too many stories. The blue-black hue of a battered face, the thickening redness of a bleeding heart, or the blackness of a broken spirit. The Silence We Eat is a book … Continue reading The Silence We Eat: Oyindamola Shoola
