We are the brilliants

We are the spiders

We are the brilliant spiders who take nothing for granted

Our meticulousness brought about the beautiful kente

“Ahenfo ntaade,

Amamafo anuonyam,

Ahuↄfԑfo ahokade,

Ye si yԑn bo ka no pein!

Aaane, yԑ nyansaa sene Kwaku Ananse”

And so we are proud

Ɔnyunu akԑntԑn

Ɔnyunu anyansafo nkatasoↄ

Yԑ nyansa sene anyansanfo nnyinaa

Enti yԑ nwine kente nanso yԑnwine yԑ kro

Yԑ kente fԑfԑԑfԑ nanso yԑ kro yԑ bↄ tirimuhwԑ”

We are the wiselings with beautiful weavy fingers

But try-and-visualise township

Which is no comfort zone

But we must blow our horns

Because we are ‘Asanti mma,

Ɔtekↄkↄↄsoↄ nananom”

So hold my hand

Let me hold your hand

Let him hold our hands

Let her hold our hands                               

And like the spider, weave our dream nest: Bonwire.

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. :)
