To My Silent Readers

Dear Silent Readers, I am sorry I am calling you out, I am sorry there is no more hiding my frustration I can not control these words from my mouth.  I feel you silently build me up, you grow me with your tranquil waters, however lately I have been experiencing the stormy weathers with downpours and…

Answered Prayer by Eli Oko

My Social Love by Eli Oko

Whatsapp’s are green Emails are blue But even my phone knows When it’s a message from you Snapchats go ping And IG belts a sound I treasure a message from you Wherever it’s found. -EO

For Life by Eli Oko

I think my obsession with corridors sparked from things I have never quite been able to explain Parts of my thoughts that don’t have logical reasoning I think the enclosed feeling was security but the longer the corridor the better As it began to symbolise infinity I think my obsession with these 2 walls and…
