Nkani: All That Glitters 7 – It’s the Simple Things

My phone rings and I sigh in irritation. How many times does one have to call before they realise I’m not available? Gosh. This is nonsense. The loud tone goes on. Why can’t I get what I want? Nothing is going right today. It’s one thing after another. I just want out of the day…

Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit. Why the hell did I wear heels in the first place? Why do employers always want women to wear heels. These things hurt. Ankles strained from awkward angles of the back of my foot to my toes. Bad enough we can barely run in them. If a war starts the…

Nkani: All That Glitters : The Beginning- Death meet Everyone

March 2016 If I told you life starts when you die, would you choose to die? Would you choose to not exist? I would choose this. The very life I’ve had so far. It’s been interesting; but we never plan ahead for the things we should have taken into account like how meeting one person…
