Love Story

Love Story

A poem by ChidiJ.

Do you?

I do!

Fast forward 10 years later…

Do you?

I do... believe in prenups.

41. Happy Birthday To Me!

 41, Happy Birthday to me!

A Poem by ChidiJ

She is 41 years old today.

Do the math...

1292976000 seconds.

21549600 minutes.

359160 hours.

14965 days.

491.999 months.

41 calendar years.

But what can she show for it?


Except for the Love that she has for her family, her friends, our humanity, and the world.


Except for the drive to create the change that can save a girl, a boy, a nation.


Ashes to Ashes. Dust to dust.

For she is here but for a short while.

So all she really needs to show for 41 is


But there is so much in between the nothings.

At 41, she is neither too naive nor too old to effect change.

41 is a good age.

Happy Birthday to me.
