Average Girl

Happy New Year People! (Yes, I know its late, seeing as one month is already gone…but at least I said it right?)

Instead of getting into any apologies about not posting for ages (since we’ve been here before), I am just going to get on with what I believe to be a very important post and hope that this year I can successfully put up quality posts for you every week (or at least bimonthly *wavy wink*).

This month is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month in the Untied States, as declared by now ex-President Barack Obama in January 2012. I wrote a poem titled ‘Average Girl’ some years ago and have recently re-worked it. I performed¬†the poem at the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) dinner in December 2016. The poem loosely ties in with this month’s theme, but I don’t want to spoil it by telling you all about it before you read (and/or watch)¬†it. The subject matter is of grave importance to me, and I hope to you too.

So please, see it attached HERE for your reading pleasure, and for those who are visually stimulated, I have also included a link HERE to the video of my performance at the NBA Dinner. Please share to raise awareness for victims, like and comment too..for me.

May your week be filled with Love that surpasses all knowledge.

Ms Eva Johnson.
