Blood, Sweat and Tears

Blood, Sweat and Tears

written by: Uchenna Victoria

 

Blood, sweat and tears… Even with all her sacrifice, she was never good enough.
For the longest time, Celia’s heart was ‘the fallow ground’. Her job was to give life to the hearts of broken and nearly destroyed men. And their job? It was to take and take and then leave.
After each one, and left completely alone, she would spend her days trying to rejuvenate. She always did. By the time the sun comes up the next season, she was ready to repair another man.

I love to express myself in writings and I'm passionate about social justice. In my writings, I explore the themes of love, family, social (in)justice, (in)equality, feminism and a bit of everything else. I'm usually inspired by the things that happen around me, and or as long as I can remember, the book and pen have been my closest companions.
I am a young woman who is seeking out ways to live a life of relevance, and for me, this means adding value to the lives of the people around me. I believe strongly in pooling small efforts and in celebrating small victories. I learnt early enough that it is not in my place to complain about the problems in my immediate community and that has led me to join youth groups that are passionate about driving change in areas of poverty reduction, youth empowerment and gender equality.
What makes me tick? The small things – the very little acts of love, I cherish my “alone time” as much as my sponge cakes and I'm greatly attracted to creative and innovative minds.
