The Interview in full.


Sparkle Writers, it’s another Thursday! Are you ready for today’s #WriterSpotlight feature? 


Philip Peace started writing about six months ago but his resolve to write has helped him to achieve a whole lot in his few months of writing. Like we always say, just start; you never know where your writing can take you. 

Enjoy this interview.

Hello Philip, please introduce yourself:

I’m Akinwale Peace Akindayo, publicly known as Philip Peace. I’m a writer and poet.

While doing a quick background check we found this in your bio; “I write to wound hearts and heal hearts, I write to kill hopes and to keep hopes alive “ Can you please explain what you mean?

Yes, most of my works are satire. I have a couple of romantic poetry too but I often write satire, and satire criticizes the ills in the society. So when my words wound hearts and kill the hope of vicious men, same words would heal the heart of some and keep their hope of surviving alive. That is what it means, in short.

How long have you been writing for and what have you learnt in these years?

I started writing at the mid year 2016. Since then, I’ve been improving both in making words and in effecting rhymes without much ado. Aside that, I write daily and it keeps me well, I can now say “if I don’t write a work of art in a day, the day isn’t fruitful.”


What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?

Well, I learned language, writing precisely, has power when I weighed the power of words. Words are simply everything.

Where do you get inspiration from?

I’m inspired by anything, tangible or intangible. I also get inspiration from things around me. At times, I often think as a pauper and write his mind.


You seem to love sharing your work on Instagram, what inspired this?

Actually, I’m not such a cute being…I’m not a fan of taking pictures too, so sharing my works there would make others know what I do and see some things, some facts…about life and what is really happening.

What one thing would you give up to become a better writer?

Nothing really, but anything or person that disturbs the goal, I’ll surely let go.

Apart from writing, what are your other hobbies?

I read too, I like sports as well…

Have you ever been rejected as a writer, if yes please tell us about it.

Well, I can’t say I’ve been rejected, maybe the works I submitted for contests are not okay or luck was just sick.

What is your ultimate dream as a writer?

“To walk to a stranger’s house and see some of my books in his shelf.” Fulfillment.

How has your writing evolved over the years, did you do anything specific to make improvements? If yes, please share with us.

I improved in writing with a specific meter in each poem, especially since the beginning of this year. Meters are  the same thing as saying syllables, so having a definite meter is a having a definite syllable in each line or poetry.

Aside that, I actually created a blog to save my work for the present and for the future, it’s the easiest means to access to the world too.

What’s the biggest lesson writing has taught you:

You can only stand when you are ready to stand. They’ll come and challenge you, your works might not be appreciated, it’s just a means of saying;“without us, won’t you survive?”

If you could be anything in the world, what would you be?

The best that I can be.



I am Akinwale Peace Akindayo, publicly known as Philip Peace.
Thanks for reading. Bless you.

A GLIMPSE INTO THE TWO WORLD | John Kelechi Uzoma

A GLIMPSE INTO THE TWO WORLDS

A quick look into the deep well,
  I saw the cloud swimming.
Smiles had blown up my cheeks
  whilst quite stable stood my feet.


Again, I saw the eagle in the well,
   flapping its wings but drowned not,
A huge fear hugged my statue,
   yet, I stood as one being halted.


Quickly, as I looked upon the sky,
  i saw gallons of smokes racing,
As i slept in mute just to imagine,
   my head swelled so high.


Then, I walked off the well side,
  terrible could be life after life,
But life after death, is like feathers...
   logging into the mud for ages.

Read the story. TEARS IN MY EYES

BOOK PUBLISHED: TEARS IN MY EYES by OLOLADE AKINLABI IGE.GENRE: NOVELLA

Synopsis.

                     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…

FABLE 1

THE LOCAL HENS AND THE CHICKENS.
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…
