MY DILEMMA

Mama, I don’t know what I want

When I crave for fish, I think of marrying a fisherman

Who will bring me many fresh fishes from the cleanest oceans

When I crave for fresh vegetables, I think of marrying a farmer

Who will bring me many fresh vegetables from his farm

When I am tired, I think of marrying a masseur

Who will massage my pains away with love

When I watch television and see a nice newscaster, I think of marrying a news anchor

Who I’ll parade in front of my friends who will be dying of envy

When I fear for my life, I think of marrying a soldier or a policeman,

Who will protect me with all he has

When I feel lazy and hungry, I think of marrying a chef

Who’ll cook and serve me delicious meals

When I need to renew my wardrobe, I think of marrying a designer

Who will design lots of fancy clothes just for me

When I need to travel, I think of marrying a pilot or a driver

Who will get me to my destination without any hassle

When I find it difficult to learn, I think of marrying a teacher

Who will teach me with love

When I am sad, I think of marrying a comedian

Who will help me laugh my sadness away

When I find it difficult to work with the computer, I think of marrying a computer scientist

Who will teach me everything I need to know about the computer

When I am sick, I think of marrying a doctor or a nurse

Who will nurse me until I am healed

When I need to go sightseeing, I think of marrying a tour guide

Who will take me to the most peaceful places in the world

When I see how difficult children can be, I think of marrying a baby nurse

Who will stay at home and take care of the kids as I work

Mama, I don’t know what to do

I really, really do not know what to do

Sometimes too, I want to be alone forever

Without any interference from anyone let alone a man

Mama, get me out of this dilemma

Or I will finally settle for a psychiatrist and may end up having an affair with one of his patients.

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. :)
