Why are they?

     Yea, I should have done this long hours ago but I was rejecting the urge but now I see the reason to fight even when I'm of the other gender.
Why do they regard them as the weaker vessel?
Why do they make them feel little?
Why do they make them feel useful only at home?
Why do they make them a fulltime wife when they also have dreams to chase?
Why do they make those women, girls and ladies, in context females, be subjected as an object of ridicule when it's obvious they need greater respect?
     I see no reason why females shouldn't be given an equal right.
Yes, they are regarded as a weaker vessel but note: they hold back tears when their husband cries, they still feed their kids with their milk after dozens of bites on their nipple. Don't say they don't have an option but to take care of the baby, they don't and they do have an option.
They don't have an option because it's their sole responsibility to take care of their heir and they do have an option, they could simply ask for a house maid BUT the fact that they respect the blood of their husbands and their own blood that flows in the baby's vein, they have to risk the pain for the family's (at large) gains.

     I often wonder why husband a times fight their wife.
The feeding money isn't enough, the kids school fee hasn't been paid, the expenses is too much for her to handle and her upkeep is another investment.
Before I go on, note that all fingers are not equal and not all women can feed their family, their are some that need the love and care to grow!
Now, the expenses are too much to handle and she simply asked her  husband for help while she tries the little she could do BUT in the stead, allegations without confirmation are alleged against her and then the dick-head husband raises his hand to scold her. 


I'll never be a party to scolding a female.
Why are made a picture of less-usefulness whereas they are the pride and the contributor population in the world. They are made with enough qualities to make the world a better place through man. Yes! Those words of encouragement can make the world a better place.
      Let me chip this in, "the pride of a woman is the honour, love, care and respect you give to her", when those four things are out of it, I bet it that the marriage life or relationship life cannot be enjoyed.
Yes there is money and the possession is high, if it lacks love and care especially PATIENCE, the marriage is fading.
     I stand to this motion that females shouldn't be an object of ridicule but a pride for males, that females should be regarded as the family because they make the family a blissful one.
I don't say men are not the breadwinner of the family, men are the bread winner but if you tell me of a happy family, I'll show you a woman in the dark fighting for the family, therefore let's respect these females. They are regarded as the weaker vessels, let our love and care come together with patience to make them strong.
     To the females reading my words, I pay my obeisance: for your patience and calmness, for your understanding and your help to the successful families and organizations.
"Women build the family and they mar the family.
Our love, time and devotion will make them build our family and our able selves".

Thank you.

Read the story. TEARS IN MY EYES



                     TEARS IN MY EYES     The anxiety for sex prompted the award winning and young Nigerian poet (Ololade Akinlabi Ige) to sharpen the keen mouth of his pen to write the novella: TEARS IN MY EYES. This is a book for everyone to read.
The pains and agony the main character in the novella went through were meant to awake the conscience of the wicked being. 

     Ariyo is a beautiful lady. Eyes cannot deny that. She is a product of rape but she leaves behind her worries knowing fully well that the world is good for no one. But she feels it is very stupid if she eventually falls victim of what led her to life. She tries to always avoid intimate relationship with boys because she knows quite well that boys often come with different missions in which most of the time their common mission is sex, sex and sex.
     But we are all human being, this heart needs a companion. So it is for Ariyo who uncons…



Once upon a time, a woman has a big store for her chickens. The chickens are so big that they give big and good eggs everytime they release eggs. The woman fed them so much that they were weighty even after releasing eggs.
One day, a customer brought some local hens to her, she said
"Try them, they are also good hens. They give big eggs as well. You'll enjoy keeping and feeding them."

The woman collected them and added them with his chickens. The chickens and the local hens stayed together in a place.
One day, the woman gave them the normal food they eat, as the chickens pecked their food moderately, the local hens scattered it with their legs as they peck, they scattered it around and peck, they did that till they liter the whole place.
Mother hen looked at the chickens,
"We're the same now, we eat the same food. We will yield the same eggs, we will be on the postal too."
The chickens flap their feathers feebly and rested th…

One Poem by Muhammad Auwal Ibrahim


Allah has answered the prayer of the weaker animals
None think that you will survive such attack
By those big lions
For whatever they chase,
They make sure is no longer breathing
on earth
You are a rabbit that survived harassments by
Those dark dogs
Inside that forest
Think not, that is your speed that saved you
It is the protection of Allah
We are all animals
But of higher class
Not those that live in the forest
Of which some are weak
While some are strong
The weak is always threaten by the strong
Let's all learn how to live in peace
With one another
