In the animal kingdom

There are the smaller versions of the bigger

Defying the rule of equality.

In the land of the alphabets

There are the upper cases

And the lower cases

Defying the norm of respect for all.

In the earth’s hydrosphere there are the oceans;

Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Southern, Artic Oceans

In their respected descending classes

Then the seas, lakes, rivers, streams and brooks

Pay homage to their kings by their flowing contributions.

Can there be equality to the tether?

When mountains glare at us

Showing their masculinity or femininity

And giving us proof of their variances?

Do we really want equality when we stand to lose the little help?

Are we really capable of fending for our emotions in torrential downpour of attacks?

Can we lift the heavies and turn around for the tiredness?

Remember, carrying isn’t all

There’s the sleeplessness, the whining, the feeding and the many chores.

Will we really be free if we become equal with societal mini-gods?

What will we gain if we are the mini gods instead of the mini goddesses?

Maybe respect must be sought

Equal remunerations for equal efforts must be achieved

But do we need to be bosses with our intermittent childlike hearts?

I may be in the land of wonder

Being swept and caressed by the handsomeness of doubt

And being frightened by the possibility of the winner takes it all

If that is it, let the seduction of doubt take its course and faze

And fright of the unknown turn to blindness

And help me see through the darkness

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
