I love the trees

I love the air

But I am so scared

I am so so scared

That I would be tied to a strong tree

On a windy day being whipped by the branches of the trees

As a mob of lovers turned haters chant in agreement

I love the sun

I love the rain

But I am scared

I am scared out of my wits and senses

That I would be put on a stick-like bed facing the dim sun,

Being pulled by four hyenas

As the thunder strikes and the rains pour on me.

I love the cold

I love the heat

But I am scared

I am so scared

That I would be viewed on smooching metal wires on a hot fire

On a very cold day as carnivores salivate in anticipation.

I love to run

I love to trot

But I am scared

I am so scared in utter delusion

That I would be ridden like a horse, carrying many heavy goods

And being canned to go faster by a master who has no drop of compassion.

Stop using words to push me

Those meaningless blackmails are antiquated to me

Let me be in my queenly trance where fear only sits untouched.

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. :)
