Her ebony radiated
As she stood in elegance
Now ready to tell the story to the glory
Everyone lost in her beauty
Like the pink roses that grace the morning
We couldn't resist applauding
It became more interesting
The applause not ending
I needed to know who she was
What the story would be

Then she got to the podium
Got a hold of the microphone
Took a deep breath
So deep that I got a lot more interested in the story
Even before she could start

She gave a broad smile
Rolled her eyes through the length 
and breadth of the large hall
Then she began
With a subtle but sweet and confident voice
She began
‘Ladies and gentlemen
I saw this day coming long time ago
Did I understand it?
Not quite sure...
But one thing you must take from me today is
Persistence, hard work and diligence brought me here
Believe in yourself
Believe you can make it
And finally have unwavering faith in God
Thank you...’

She took a bow
With a gracious smile gazing round
The ovation was like no other
As she made for her seat

ABUSED - ‘SAYING SOCIETY’ So loud So loud she shouted Shouting for help Every other night She is shouting I can hear her now He is hitting her again She's been hit, beat and battered Wounded inside out Lost her glow Lost herself-worth Lost her confidence Lost her smile All for what the society would say
She is grinding She is grieving She is dying Because the society won't listen to her No one wants to hear her own side of the story No one cares how she feels She has been told to stay there and fight for her home She has been admonished to stay and pray some more She has been told everything will be alright But for how long For how long She has been caged by what the society says
This 'saying society'


My name is Stella Obokoh, I am a wife, mother, writer, educationist and an entrepreneur.Inspiring people through creating pictures in their imaginations makes life good for me. Helping people see light and positivity in every situation is great meal. Seeing people realise and believe in their abilities makes me have a good sleep. I love teaching, I love children so dearly, they are my 'berry berry' anytime and I enjoy being a team player. Starinscriptions is born out of a heart to reach many through creative writings (poems, stories, quotes and writeups) that will be soothing and getting others to do same.
