You’ve Got Jewels In You



You’ve got jewels in you

The purest of all the golds

Of all the precious stones

More treasures than can

Be ever imagined

In lifelong proportion


So do not let

To be shrunk

To an eternal cipher

Seen as a paltry

Or the malodorous junk

From the debris truck.

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.
