LETTING GO…..


It felt like a knot in her heart; one that seemed to grow tighter each day. Sometimes she felt she couldn’t even breathe. How could they have done this to her? She had actually trusted them and called them her friends. She could not believe her ears when she found out they had spoken behind

THIS JOURNEY CALLED LIFE


Sometimes we get so engrossed in pursuing our dreams and desires that we forget the things that really matter. It had been a while since I made time to visit my grandparents, so I decided to go one early morning. Sitting there with them, I couldn’t ignore the tears that were threatening to cloud my

THE PRAYER


A typical JSS Morning Assembly routine involved standing at attention to either say the national pledge, sing the national anthem, or if the teachers were in a good mood, both! That was the only time everyone made a conscious effort to stand still before being spotted for fidgeting too much. Singing the national anthem, however,

A WELCOME STRANGER


I was in an area that was a bit unfamiliar to me, but needed to get to an internet café as quickly as possible in order to beat a deadline. I asked a gentleman who was seated near the road for directions, and as he began to use his hands to show me how I

One Year Down The Line


“So when are you going to make your blog an actual website?” I always used to avoid that question, because apart from honestly not knowing the answer, I was a bit nervous about taking the next step. Whereas running a blog on a small scale was fairly easy, I felt managing a website was going

AN ELEVATOR LESSON


I have always had this weird fear of elevators, especially in a country where the lights could go off at any time. “What if I get stuck?” was one of the first questions that run through my mind (still does sometimes) whenever I had to use an elevator. So wherever I had to go, I

SHIFTING PERSPECTIVES


Abby and John walked to the car park together, laughing about an experience John had had with his girlfriend at a restaurant the night before. He and Abby had fast become good friends, and his girlfriend couldn’t wait to meet her. Speaking of which, he had to go and pick her up for a church

Embracing the Silence


For some time now, I’ve not posted any article; which led some of my cherished readers to ask if I had gone on a break from writing. Truth be told, I didn’t have anything to write, not because of the famous writer’s block, but simply because I did not take time off to reflect and

Being Esiaba


“I sometimes wonder how it will feel to be known…to be in the spotlight and to be appreciated. Being the only child has not really been easy and I feel so lonely sometimes. School is another matter altogether. I’d rather everyday were a holiday….” “Esiaba!” Esiaba dropped her pen, startled. Her mum’s loud call had

Hi there!

My name is Nana Boatemaa Amoah, usually known simply as Boatemaa. I’m a Christian and believe we all have a specific purpose to fulfill…that is one main reason why I decided to make my writing more than just a hobby, but also an opportunity to bless others. I decided to start blogging about two years ago and I haven't regretted it since! What idea have you been meaning to act on for some time now? You never know until you try!
