There is the white pot

There is the red pot

There is the black pot

But based on the value placed on each

They can be same

The same clay makes the different pots

Why the preference?

The same force can break them all

Why the preference?

Why must the black pot be rejected and made dirty

When they were also made from the same mother earth?

Think about it, most black pots hold more value as they’ve been

Through more torturous flames to attain their stature and complexion

So why look down on them because of how they look?

“Honam yԑ honam, wo diԑ yԑ fitaa, ԑna me diԑ yԑ tuntum

Ԑwↄmu sԑ me ankasa me sԑ so fo de tuntum ayԑ awufo nkaedeԑ deԑ

Nanso, me gye me ho di sԑ meyԑ fԑ paa!

Enti adԑn na wopԑ sԑ wodidi ma ahwehwԑ atԑm?

Adԑn na wopԑ sԑ, wo ma me gye di sԑ nsu a ԑnam me mu no nnyԑ kↄkↄↄ te sԑ wodeԑ no pԑpԑԑpԑ?

Ewiase wↄ hↄ yi, obiara wↄ ade a yԑbԑtumi de no atotohu,

Sԑ wofrԑ me aduii a, menso mԑtumi afrԑ wo prԑko

Hunu nso sԑ, aduii nim nyansa bebree sene prako”

So treasure the pots equally and let’s stop this conversation of naught

For they never choose their sculptor and their form

If these differences persist

The least favoured pot may scream and fall

Since they are mostly placed side by side,

The fall of one can be the end for all

We are the earth

We are mortal

We are the pots made by the same sculptor which self-destructs with time

Bickering and differences will not change that

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. :)
