Ruining Souls

It all begins with the dust, sniffed as though it’s a must

In the confusion they whirled, as eyes open to the world

Minds are taken by the sneeze, sneeze bought with their fees

Progenitor gets beaten, as the inglorious acts worsen

They are infallibly compelled to do the
cursing as well as yell

Where could the faculty be seen, to change the path of ruin?

Snapback might be the best, but the world could do the rest

Get rid of the vicious stuff, shed it as should a slough

Noxious stuff’s as dangerous as hell, the risks no one can tell

It could burn, it could mill, It could ruin, it could kill

Time to say no to quietus, let the great life meet us

Set the selfish world aside, let the ruining souls to abide

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.
