Open Letter #11: To God, My Heavenly Father 


Hello Daddy, It’s me again. I know I’ve already knocked on your door to greet you when I woke up this morning. But in the spirit of celebrating a new month, I want to write you a personal heartfelt letter. I just thought of asking you how last night went but then I remembered, you…

Open Letter #10: To My Parents 


Hello dear mum and dad,I want to let you know first of all, how blessed I feel to be born to you both. Though you are far from perfect, I can’t imagine myself been raised by any other couple. I turned out the way I did because of your influence and for that, I’m forever…

Open Letter #9: To My Day


Hi Today, I know that you’re neutral with twenty hours to provide me. I’m grateful to be alive to spend you to live my life. Some days feel great and others, terrible but it’s no fault of yours. You’re just passing by; what happens to me during your twenty four-hour timeline is what determines a…

Open Letter #8: To My Body


Hi my earthen vessel, You’re feeling great today, right? I agree. Apart from the usual cold threatening to come a-visiting, all’s well. From my conception in my mother’s womb till now, you’ve contained me and I want say thank you for that. For the many times that I’ve hurt or scarred you out of haste…

Open Letter #7: To My Future Children 


Hi sweethearts, This is your mummy from her spinster years. Just thought I would pen down a letter telling you about myself at this moment since I’m sure I’d have changed a little after you came along. Judging from my chubby toddler self, I wouldn’t be surprised if you turned out the same way. I…

Open Letter #6: To My [Next] President 


I’m referring to the next President whose tenure would start in January next year as we’re in an election year and even if the current President is re-elected, his new tenure offers him a fresh chance to serve. Mr. Excellency, First of all, I’d like to say congratulations. It must be a huge honor to…

Open Letter #5: To Myself as a Child 


Hi you, This is a letter from the grown-up you from the year 2016. Uh huh, seems so far away, right? Don’t underestimate the ticking clock. It ticks away very fast and it seems to be racing now. I know you’re about to turn to the age of double digits and you’re full of energy,…

Open Letter #4: To My Bully


Hi there,I hope you are doing well wherever you are. Of all the people I would have wanted to write to, you were the last on my mind. But after all these years, I guess it is necessary for me to do this so I get the closure I so need. Memories of my life…

Open Letter #3: To My Future Spouse


Dearest you, I hope to remember to show you this letter before I take on your name. We have a long way to go after the happy ceremony, just so you know. Though I can’t picture you right now, I’m assured that just looking at you will make my heart content knowing I chose well. …

Open Letter #2: To My Best Friend 


Dear Naana, We try hard to keep in touch as much as possible so I know you are doing well. We have come far as friends and we’ve grown closer to the point that we consider ourselves as family. We’ve known each other for almost eleven years (from senior high school) but it’s the past…

Open Letter #1: To My Favorite Teacher 


Dear Mr. Gyasi, I hope this letter finds you well wherever you may be. It has been about eighteen years since we last met but it feels like it was just yesterday when I sat in your class in third grade at Cambridge International School. I used to be one of the last pupils to…

Miss Me, Anyone? 


Sorry for being MIA for some time now. Left home on some big-sisterly duties; had to take my sister out of town to write some entrance exams and the whole process took longer than I anticipated. Because I wanted to pack light, I decided to leave my laptop behind and oh my, what a mistake…
