|Slay Queen by Penshalom(f): 9:54am On Mar 01|
I wanted it all
I forgot you cannot have it all.
I wanted to be a child of God and at the same time I wanted to be like the rest.
But one always prevailed.
It got to a point that I had to choose one and I chose what seemed right to me.
"After all, I am still young" I thought.
I wanted it all.
Nothing seemed enough for me.
The more I got, the more I needed.
Looking through my Instagram account made the desire to get it all intensify.
I saw the pictures.
I loved them all.
I wanted to be as beautiful as the people I saw.
I wanted the 'likes'.
I wanted the comments.
I wanted the followers.
I desired the clothes.
Thinking about it now makes me realize how stupid I was.
I got the money for clothes and good phones with a quality camera through unclean means.
My life online was different from my life in reality.
I became so popular.
Before I knew it I had various nudes and half Unclad pictures.
I sold my body for popularity.
Can you believe it??
I grew older though.
I was going through my profile one day and something struck me..
"What am I getting from this?".
I decided to put an end to it.
I decided to go back to my Maker.
I started living the life I was living before.
It's been five years now.
I got a good job.
I am comfortable.
I have a fiance.
A godly one.
We are getting married soon.
I am so happy.
"Everything is fine."
At least that's what I thought.
One day I received a call from my future father-in-law to come over..
I thought he wants to talk about the wedding coming up.
I went there immediately but as I entered.
The smile on my face turned to a frown.
I realized the atmosphere was tense.
I looked to my right and saw my fiancee glaring at me with a phone in his hand.
Before I could ask what was wrong he was screaming in my face and shoved the phone in my hand.
"Why the hell have I been seeing your breasts all day?!!!!!!!"
I suddenly could not breathe.
The silence was deafening.
My mother-in-law was giving me "the looks".
My father-in-law kept staring at me in a scary calm way.
My fiance was looking at me coldly.
The atmosphere became more tense.
"Well, won't you speak for yourself?, Iyawo wa" my mother-in-law said with mockery and disdain laced especially in the last two words.
"I cannot believe my past caught up with me
I should have told him.
Why did I not delete my account
How in the world did he even see it, it's been five years"
This and many more were the thoughts running through my mind but I knew I had to talk.
I opened my mouth and answered the question my fiance asked me earlier.
"I wanted to be a slay queen"
Note: For those who are not Yoruba
Iyawo wa means "Our wife"
It is often used by those from the husband's family to call their daughter-in-laws.
Thank you for actually reading this.

Oh they have come again with this super story. While you go taking drugs for slay Queens head, who told you they don't know the risks involved?
And the message was judgmental
Is that how to win souls?
Everybody is dying on top slay Queens, what of yahoo boys? Or are they the only ones whose pasts won't catch up with them?
Yeye dey smell.
I'm not a slay queen but enough of this nonsense. Someone can't take pix in peace again without getting named what you are not.
Last 2years it was a "runz babe ", this year it's "slay queen ". I'm waiting for the next name slogan bunch of jobless people would pick up.
|Re: Slay Queen by fatdick(m): 10:48pm On Aug 12|
Maybe you are too buried in your "slay-vity" to fathom the moral lesson of this post. You can just ignore the post, experience is also a great teacher.

|Re: Slay Queen by ChopBellefull(m): 11:12pm On Aug 12|
Some people never learn even though u put gun to dia head.. I see som slay queens above me trash talking.
Op story z so nice coz she even had an opportunity to get fiance at all. Som slay queens will end up telling devil dia story wen dey get to hell at a very early age. Its nt a curse, better be sensible now or lose either ur future prestige or ur present life.
BTW Op if no b say u b yoruba we for get future plans, bt i dnt want to gv birth to international kids, coz i m a Biafran.. But i love ya post. Keep it up.

swiz123:Must you comment?
You call a motivational fiction a POO?
TRY AND PRETEND TO BE SENSIBLE FOR ONCE...
|Re: Slay Queen by 400billionman: 11:14pm On Aug 12|
Anything that someone is doing that cannot guarantee him/her a future is mere stupidity..
|Re: Slay Queen by 400billionman: 11:17pm On Aug 12|
Why is it paining you ?
|Re: Slay Queen by natznext(m): 11:29pm On Aug 12|
People hate what they don't understand, criticize what they can't comprehend...
|Re: Slay Queen by jonnytad(m): 11:45pm On Aug 12|
Example of a slay queen? Maybe I can understand.
