They were yet to run.

May 5, 2017 Emma M 0

If I had told these shoes the day I brought them home that they were going to help me move from a size 44 to a size 36, they would have been sceptical; and if I had told them after a month of wearing them, they would have flat out laughed at me with tears rolling while they roll on the ground in laughter.   You see; I wore these […]

My two weeks as a vegetarian

March 10, 2017 Emma M 0

So I decided that in order for my healthy weight-loss program to give me effective and quicker results I’m going to spend the next one year as a vegan. No meat, no processed foods and lots of veggies and fruits. That didn’t work out so well. I literally didn’t go beyond two weeks. I spent exactly one week and four days as a vegetarian. Don’t get me wrong, there’s apsolutely […]

The cold hard cement can teach you great lessons

November 13, 2016 Emma M 0

Sometimes in life one does not realize how bad things are becoming until you fall flat down with your face on the ground. Being young and na├»ve doesn’t help either when you are heading for dark dangerous areas. You see, I grew up under the guidance of a praying mother. She would pray about and for a lot of things; in my young state I couldn’t understand the devotion to […]

Cold rainy days are for warm outings

September 10, 2016 Emma M 0

My greatest love when it’s cold. This time of the year is great in Pietermaritzburg, it is cool and the flowers and trees are beautiful. All looks so great but God knows I hate the unpredictable London-like weather. Despite heating up the room and a cup of soup, still feels like something is missing. I think it’s the memories of cold days when I was younger that make me feel […]

The day the devil went to church

September 9, 2016 Emma M 1

(Fiction) One evening the devil was sitting and reflecting on all the things he’d done. While reminiscing on his life, he realized that he had really done a lot of damage to a lot of innocent people and some who weren’t so innocent. All this thinking actually made his head hurt and somehow reached at the core of his heart; that’s when he decided that it was time repent and […]

Hush little angel don’t you cry, Don’t shed a tear for the unknown, Hush little angel don’t make a sound, Don’t let the devil know you are troubled.

Little angel, I’m your hero, Call on me for a shoulder, My little one won’t fall, I’ll be […]
