Princess Poetry

360°(2) The Price

By Juliet Maruru

You are the mistress of your fate;

Princess Poetry

You are the lady of your soul.

It`s been an incredible week. The Princess Project (K) Team has grown!

This week, Sarah Maureen Radoli walked regally into the Princess Project (K) Back Rooms armed with our first Queen Story. Kate`s Reality. Remember these will be true stories. You can share your life story, or nominate a dive in your life. Just go to The Queen Stories to find out how.

Earlier on, we highlighted two books for you. Have a look at the review of Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Adichie, and then go on to The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisnero.

You might recognise the opening lines of our note today as the slightly modified closing lines of William Ernest Henley`s Poem Invictus. Osas, our guest mzee of the week closed his missive to the young lady, K., as she sets off into the journey into life, with the above words. See what else he wrote to the young lady. Invicta (To K., with Love)

Linda Musita came sashaying through leaving  behind wafts of lavender scent and thoughts of clear blue skies gently gracing the Poetic Room. But the poem most loved by you was a bit of a war cry; Aunt Gololi. But see the other poems too at Poetic Wednesday: Lady Sky.

Remember to keep an eye on the Opportunities page as you never know when doors open, and they do not always open with a creak. Make sure you hover over the tab to access the sub-pages in the drop down menu.

And now for the moment you have been waiting for. It is time for this week`s Creekside Princess Webisode.

At that thought my heart almost stopped. It`s like the fog in my brain cleared. Oh my God my periods are two weeks late! " I cursed. In panic I went to check my diary. Yes, it was true. My periods were late!

Cooper had used protection but when he had gotten bored he had taken me to a gynaecologist to get some birth control. I couldn`t remember if I had ever forgotten to take my pills " Lord knows it was hard enough hiding them away from Mum- but that was not important. Read the rest here.
