The Fear of God

God is real. Honestly, I am so happy and so shaken and so shivery and so awed right now. By God’s grace, I will relay in a comprehensive blog what happened tonight. (It’s 00:16am as I write now, but I’m talking about what happened between the hours of about 6pm-midnight). Let’s start at the very…

REBORN | Poetry

~ commute writing~ When heaven meets earth, Oxygen freezes Time…starts again, Like He always has done And will do, The Alpha of the Earth And Omega of all dominion   When heaven meets earth, Your heart expands, A balloon whose rubber skin Stretches beautifully, to fill every empty space inside you Every wish that reached…

PRIVILEGE | Poetry

“You’re far more privileged than I am,” Says the girl to the boy. “It’s not rare; That I walk down the street, only to be harassed,   Gunned down with jokes and comments too crass For me to repeat, men stare at my ass “Yes you’re far more privileged than I.” . “You’re far more…

2018 Goals

Happy new year! It’s only ten days into 2018 so like…it’s time to share some goals with you, right? Not that I’m saying sharing goals with others is conducive or wise at all. In fact, I will only be sharing a few of them and not going into much detail 😉 Without further ado – here…

28 Things in 2017 That I’m Grateful For

  I and my family are happy, healthy and more than blessed. 2. I joined a Spirit-led Church, which is also one that my best friend attends! Alas, no picture here. But imagine thousands of young people under the same roof praising God and that’s what my church is like. ❤ 3. I ACTUALLY BLOGGED Be…

Do Better | Spoken Word

Because at one point or another, we have probably enabled the system.   Transcript as follows:   DO BETTER   I do not deserve to belong to this movement; I know that wokeness is not a state of being; It’s a journey we’re all on But I can’t forgive myself for having slept for quite…

Nikki learns: A new language

I’m learning a new language. It’s a pretty big deal and here’s why… Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was 100% sure I was awful at languages. If I ever met a polygot, I would tell them, “Wow. How can you do that? That’s incredible! (It is obviously) I could never do that.”…

Hey you. Yes you. We made it! Three years. My longest successful relationship so far. And boy, I can tell you that it’s been an amazing three years. I have to admit that I’ve only just realised how much I love you (yes, you) and I know I should have realised it earlier, right?  Most…

Nikki Recommends: Christian Non Fiction

The original opening for this blog post was going to read: ‘Hey guys! So I have something a little different for you today…’ But upon reflection, I often blog about writing and I also often blog about Christianity, so like… *shrugs* Anyhoo, this is for anyone out there looking for some good Christian material/curious about…

Cheerios: Extract from a Story

I decided to break the news over a bottle of wine; there is no need to be uncivil about these things, after all. Amber, I imagined myself saying, I loved you for twenty two years but I no longer do and I think it would be best for us to go our separate ways. I…
