  • How to Mourn Someone You Don’t Like

    By Kiah on February 12, 2016
    I didn’t like Hammed Ajiboye. He infuriated me. He had opinions that I thought were uneducated. He argued blindly. He seemed to have more spirit that his frail body could handle. He was a lot like me. One time, he made a statement about the experiences of African Americans due to slavery and I was so mad at him that […]

  • The Real World

    By Kiah on February 2, 2016
    I should write more. I should also be more forgiving of myself that I don’t write more. I entered in a story for an anthology a while back. Recently the curator asked for my real name. I answered back “Kiah”. She wrote back and said “No, your real name. We aren’t accepting pen names…” or something like that. I breathed […]

    By Kiah on January 5, 2016
    Happy New Year! Day 5 already and it is looking so good. So many good changes and I can’t help but be excited. This is life; change. We hope for more good ones than bad ones. I had a couple of bad changes entering last year but I am a believer and when my Bible says it is all working […]

  • Living Choices

    By Kiah on December 1, 2015
    Oh my God! How did we get to this place? When was it January? Can I just say that it has been an amazing, amazing year though? Last night, I was eating Ravioli and mushrooms and it suddenly occurred to me that like my dinner, 2015 was my year of new experiences, new beginnings, brand new everything. This year for […]

  • Hadiza

    By Kiah on October 10, 2015
    Dear Hadiza, I was at a philharmonic orchestra last night and suddenly, from nowhere, you crossed my mind. It wasn’t my first orchestra. I have been to too many of these things, too many but not enough. I find that this sort of music calms and inspires me so every chance I get to go to one, I go. I […]

  • What’s Left?

    By Kiah on September 25, 2015
    I was listening to a sermon, The God of What’s Left by Jentezen Franklin, who is my new favorite preacher by the way, and I had a million stories I just wanted to write about Things That Are Left, People That Are Left, Nothing That is Left. Loss can drive you insane. You keep thinking of what could have been. […]

  • Thankful Thursdays

    By Kiah on February 26, 2015
    Well, y’all can probably tell this from the title of the post, this is not a story. I am on a break from storytelling… My muse is asleep or she is off to warmer places and has left me behind in this cold. 🙁 Last year was not my most thankful year. I am one of those very few people […]

  • Let Her Go

    By Kiah on April 23, 2014
    This is not a story! You can stop reading now. No? Okay then…let’s carry on, shall we.   You were my sister. The one whose smile meant dawn. The one whose arms meant safety; safety from thorns that came with the roses life handed out. The one God intended to show me angels were real… Angels are real. But they also […]

    Death is inevitable…. As children of God, we have an assurance that we are going to a better place. We all try to fight it, especially when it is our loved ones. My hope is that when the time does come to say goodbye to those we love, it is when they are ‘as a shock of corn cometh in […]

  • A Time to Fall

    By Kiah on February 9, 2014
    I know I said I was retired…God had other ideas. I wrote this story at around 2-3 pm EST today. I saw Philomena at around 6 pm EST today too. I just started laughing as I got half-way through the movie. Y’all best believe God has an amazing sense of humor. Of all stories for me to write today, it had to […]
