Trees Of The Forest

The evergreen trees stood tall – good life in fair weather.

Esteemed branches spread out courageously, while the leaves swayed in tune with the wind.

But, they arrived unheralded – blades shiny sharp.

It happened so fast and countless trees lost their lives.

The helpless fortunate survivors, trapped in immobility mourn as the slayers carried away the fallen bodies of their victims.

They should have fought back if they could or at least run away to safety.

They just couldn’t. They could only wait for the next attack.

I'm a food scientist who has chosen the path of creative writing- the one thing which comes to me naturally.
Back in 2013, my love for teaching young learners propelled me into picking teaching as a career. I taught English, Maths and Science in the United Arab Emirates where I lived for ten years. Right now, I live in Coal City, a beautiful hilly area of my country Nigeria.
My website Fiez-writer is a product of my extreme desire to share my writing with the world. Here, I share fiction, poems, thoughts and writing tips.
A huge part of my life is spent with my lovely family and I'm a proud mother to three brilliant kids.
