Peace Beyond Human Understanding, Quirks and Pearls, Ndukwe Odinakachukwu

Yesterday, I woke up with a heavy heart. I was thinking about a lot of things, including past mistakes and decisions I have to make. I felt like running away from all that bothered me but that of course wasn’t possible.

All I could ask God was to help me, give me peace, that’s all I was saying.

2 sides to a story, Quirks and Pearls, Everyone tells a story differently

Ndukwe Odinachukwu, QuirksandPearls, common 50 naira

“Common 50 naira”

“Is it because I borrowed your jacket I won’t hear word”

“Just because of a book you are disturbing my life”
