…Inspired by the True Life Story of Demi Lovato
SO, I was up all night watching the ‘’Dancing with the Devil” docuseries; not just because I am sort of a Demi Lovato groupie (esp since her Disney days) but also because I am at a place in my life currently where I concede to the meaning of those four words.
After watching the series, I now realize that:
I have been dancing with the devil, too.
The devil she says was recreational drugs, you know, coke, Xanax, Fentanyl, and some other opioid names I can neither spell nor pronounce.

Demons expunged, chains broken and lethal hate aside, I forgive;
70 x 7 because I have been forgiven,too.
So quick update, Chidult is growing and looking out for herself.
Chidult sees how she is being accorded respect and she gives thanks for the welcome change.

Dark Poetry for those who wish they did not have to live in tombs.
I wish I could show you around the tomb that held my belongings but this tomb is built with bars dated to the 19th century, so I’m heavily laden as to how you can get in.
I wish I could pay penitentiaries to incarcerate emotional abusers, especially the kind that never make it to a doctor’s appointment because they seem physically healthy but are, unfortunately, insidiously, bi-polar.
Did you know that volcanic eruptions occurred here in Nigeria? That the liquid fire that magma is, ‘’cools’’ into…

“You and your sister have come again abi? Which one of y’all touched my diary?”
‘’Don’t be silly boy, who removed it from my bookshelf and why? I’ve told you guys it’s off-limits. Go call your sister for me.’’
‘’Yes, Mummy?’’ ,
‘’Tutu, did you touch my diary?’’
‘’Loool, I know better than to do that Mummy, it must have been King.’’
‘’Meeee? I’m not the one struggling to keep a string of boyfriends. …

That JOY when you take out those braids or ditch the wig to let your hair down and also peep your hair growth, preach somebody??? ……just that, my hair isn’t this long yet 😞😩
Oh well for starters, I was just a 7-month-old Naturalista when this post was initially written but I’ve been on this natural hair journey for almost 2 years now!
