I want to be nude,

I want to be stark raving naked with you.

I want our faces to show,

I want us to show our faces to the whole flora and fauna

Without expensive masks of discomfort.

I don’t want us to hide behind un-figurable countenance

While we scream to hide torturous voodoos of our stools.

I don’t want to calculate and form opinions that do not reflect us

So give me room, give you room to be naked.

I want our bodies to speak instead of speaking for them

I want us to show our beautiful faces coupled with their vicious intent when cornered

I want us to show our lovely stomachs in their contours with lively intestines struggling to be comfy

I want us to show every part of our being, in all their glory, filth and language of longings

Without having to hide behind grand spoken words of deceit

Nudity will speak

So give me room to be nude, show your nudity

Let us be nude, let’s be stark naked

In order to drop the sharp daggers we hold against each other in the dark

Then we will be sane

Then we will be men

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. :)
