Not Your Object

Living in a male-dominated society can be challenging for women, at least it is for me. This is especially true in the Liberian society, where men tend to objectify women on a daily basis, ranging from the streets to our places of work. Walking on the streets of Monrovia as a female has been one…

Black Imagery

I wonder why….. I wonder why I was born black… I wonder why my race has to be critically discussed and considered the way it has been Why were we considered primitive? We turned over and provided freedom to another man who kept us in slavery? I wonder if we’re primitive enough that we left…

When the Heart Decides

She was broken. Her dreams and hopes in life were scattered, and all she ever aspired to was to be happy. A once loving soul was covered with the bitterness of scars. She tried to hide the pain, but everyone saw it. She lived a life of pretense, hoping that just one day, maybe everything…

Mister Anxiety

Dear Anxiety Pain lives inside of me, Like a raging fire hugs a lost soul. Reaching out to quench my anxiety, I found that my roots weren’t deep enough. Learning to give back to my truth; Mister anxiety whispers, “hey, lost souls wander forever; I ain’t done yet.” A big drop falls from my eyes….

Obtaining a Police Clearance in Liberia

Some of us are lucky enough to afford this extra cash, but not everybody can. I pity those who have to suffer to obtain documents like birth certificates, passports, police clearances, etc. only because they cannot afford to throw away extra money.

Some of us learned how kissing is a stimulant and touching sensations make sex enjoyable.

Dating in Monrovia, Two Ladies’ Perspective

Now, Liberian men oh, we have a quick question for y’all, who told y’all that when you say “I love you” to a female, after knowing her for two goddamn seconds, she’ll somehow automatically just sleep with you? Okay, we understand, when you’re a kid and you don’t have a game yet, you say whatever you think you need to say to get into a girl’s pants. But when a grown-ass man comes with that line off the jump, it’s just baffling and off-putting.

Dating in Monrovia, a Guy’s Perspective

Once you understand that every individual attaches labels to people then you are already ahead of the curve. The only thing left is for you to know how to use this mindset when approaching or being approached by Liberian women.

The Influence of Art on a Society and How Liberia Can Learn from It

Traditional masks, murals, painted storefronts, and paintings of beautifully shaped African women in village settings; these are a few reminders of the presence of art in Liberia. Not all meets the eye from a single day’s drive through the vibrant city of Monrovia. In-fact, if one is not observant, understanding the movements and soul of…

Justice is Guilty

Humbled, I stand before this grand court To argue our case… against ‘Justice’ On behalf of humanity, Humanity is sick! And Justice is one of the diseases.   Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury: They say ‘Justice delayed is Justice denied’ Nowadays, Justice is not even delayed. It is simply being denied right from the…
