    A Place Where Dreams Lead Take me to a place where dreams lead To the Olumirin waterfall To drown all my sorrows Communing with Osun the river goddess Take me to a place where dreams lead To Obudu While I stand at the peak of the mountain To tell the tales of how I overcame Take me to a place where dreams lead To Olumo Let me hide within the rocks That sheltered my ancestors during war Take me to a place where dreams lead To Gembu To enjoy the tenderness of nature In a land most peaceful Take me to a place where dreams lead To the Kajuru castle To enjoy harmony As Europe greets Africa Take me to a place where dreams lead To the heart of the Niger delta To the oil city Home of affluence Take me to a place where dreams lead To the ancient city of Sokoto To bask in the Sahara As I step on the sands of historyTake me to a place where dreams lead Through the rivers and the creeks The thick forest and the desert To a place I call home.

    Better Version Of You

    Better Version Of You

    Calvin Cappelo is an average white collar office worker. He's tired of being average.He started listening to a self help book to regain his confidence until things got ugly.I have read a few self help books and tried to implement the principles the best I could.Some things worked. I repeated positive mantras and saw situations from a different perspective. Some things didn't work for they conflicted with my spiritual views by promising me godlike powers.It's tempting to listen to someone that will guide you in the ways of the force and say, 'do or do not, there is no try.'I notice that some help books conflictwith each-other leaving the reader scratching their heads. All they're looking for is a straight path to enlightenment not many arrows pointing in different directions.Special thanks to Tiffany C Lewis, the interview she had with me is on  Rebellion Lit Also her books, Stitcher, Inside out, and El Jeffe is available on Amazon. Music By Scott BuckleyAudio JungleAnd Freesound.org

    Murder Within The Colour Wheel

    Murder Within The Colour Wheel

    A Utopian city made out of colours is devastated by a string of homicides, is diversity a blessing or a curse.If your a long time listener you may have heard this story before in an episode called Greying Out. I enjoyed writing the original story but I felt it was missing something.I reevaluated the main characters and the central themes and made some changes.Warning tangent ahead!There is many writers who treat their stories as monoliths, or the ark of the covenant that can't be touched, and there's others that perceives it as a river that's constantly moving and changing. I'm in the second camp.Stories are living breathing entities, they develop and grow. You could read or listen to the same story twice and receive two different meanings.If you read a story about a child abduction before you have children it would feel like a different story after you have your own children. The same story takes on a different meaning depending on your situation.Writers who overlay their stories in concrete and force the reader to look through a narrow peephole are doing themselves and their readers an injustice. The best stories are tailored with questions marks, not periods.They are interwoven with possibilities and not conclusions.End Of tangent.The biggest change in this version is the mindset of the characters, each one is unique. I dug in a little deeper and drew out their emotions.MusicSpecial thanks to Jason Shaw from audionautix.com please listen and support this incredible artist. Other sounds and music by freesound.orgSuper EarthlingsThanks to Don Newton, Author of the Prophet, please follow the links, by the way his third book in the series is arriving on my birthday April 13th.Thanks to Gord Lanyon, Author of The God Hunters, available on Amazon.Thanks to the Archangel, Okon Ukeme Cornelius.

    Missing The Super Bowl For No Good Reason

    Missing The Super Bowl For No Good Reason

    The council of man is deciding to revoke my male membership because I missed the Super Bowl for the umpteenth time.
     
    Male culture consists of eating nachos, drinking beer and crushing the can on their forehead. They exchange war stories, show off their scars and tattoos, talk about babes and booze and their 8 litre engine.I don't have a good reason to miss the game and whatever excuse I make would sound lame. All I know it was some team called the 49ers and the Chiefs and there star player, Oh what's his face? Never been the macho type, my fist are not known to get into fights, even a paper-cut has me shivering, and I'm not into pissing competitions.It's too bad the male species is reduced to a stereotype, less Shakespeare and more Al Bundy,less Davinci, more Homer Simpson.
    We're expected to live in a tightly confined border where the Male flag is firmly planted, where emotional expression is a single note and tears is a symbol of weakness. Women don't have to put up with this crap, there not expected to swallow their fears and wrestle a gorilla, or care for a sports team because everyone is watching.Men can learn a thing or two, but unfortunately are heads are stuck in the Superbowl.Special Thanks:To the #writing Community on Twitter,Also please follow the link to Gord Lanyon's novel The God Hunters, available on Amazon

    Eviction Notice

    Eviction Notice

    The tenant kept on kicking and punching the walls keeping the Landlord up through the night. He didn't pay rent, instead he ate free food and put on weight. Something had to be done but this decision will change their lives forever.I enjoy writing strange, beautiful, awkward characters and placing them in a mirror universe.A mirror universe looks, feels and functions like ours.
    The laws of Physics seems identical, but when you look closer you will notice the differences. Some differences are drastic, while most appear trivial and innocuous.It's within the latter where the magic takes place.Eviction Notice deals with a life and death issue.It's designed to be listened to by yourself with your headphones.
    If I divulge the details of the story before you press play it would shatter the mirror universe leaving it null and void.

    Cosmic Looper

    Do you feel sometimes you're on a hamster wheel, you keep on running but not going anywhere, and history like sitcoms tends to repeat? Crazy man Dion is your stereotypical late night DJ. His task is to pump you up, give out prizes and play the music. In every major city around the world exist a DJ of this calibre, even in my low key nondescript Canadian city.They tend to say the same things and play the same music. I wonder if some of them are pressured by their station manager to adopt a facade. Dion Carlson changed his name to Crazy man Dion. He changed his personality and his worldview.Dion's life was controlled by millions of invisible strings. The idea of free will was only an illusion. Control and self-determination was a myth.Your SupportIf you enjoy these episodes please be my ambassador by sharing it to your friends, also remind them to subscribe to the show so that new episodes will appear every two weeks.You can also support the show financially by going to Poeticearthlings/buymeacoffee become a monthly giver, or you can give a one time donation.

Short little tid bits of this and that. Little wispers in your ear, then a thought, then splat! Mind your thoughts. Where's he going with that?!
