I wish life was a bed of roses I wish life offers to us all what we want. I wish we get all we need by merely wishing for them. Growing up as a kid, I had a lot of role models. From music to dance, to a big brother neighbour who dresses fantastically well. I admired these people for different reasons. Now, here is the interesting part.

The Plague Of Unemployment-Short Story

2020-11-26T17:05:05+00:00

Akpan! Akpan! Akpan! I turned around in discomfort and squinted to check the time, my aunty has started her usual complaints about my laziness and how all I do is sleep and eat her food.

After that I would hover around, go to offices, some let me enter, some don’t, then drop off my CV.  I left Ikot-Ekpene to Lagos [...]

I would never forget how wide my mother's smile was, her own Chukwuemeka, his father’s pride was now an engineer. Let me [...]
