Time is going by too fast. That’s the thought running through my mind when I wake up on my 3rd day at Abeokuta. I wonder how it’s the third day already.
I recognize anxiety and I try to push my worries to the back of my mind and focus instead on meeting Lola Shoneyin and treating myself to a plate of ofada rice.
Eloghosa said to me, ‘If God can’t stand to be questioned, then is he God?’ and I agree with her.
I woke up with that feeling again today. I am drowning inside a river of sadness, desperately wanting to be saved. I’m trying hard to scream for help but I can’t find my voice. This river of sadness is my body, my life. I am drowning in myself.
Short stories, articles, music and videos I enjoyed in March.
