Smear not my name in corners

Smear not my fame in hidden corners

While smiling when my eyes meet yours


Root not to pull me down in dark areas

Root not to hit me in dark areas

While clapping in front of me in broad daylight


Work not in my obliviousness with my enemies

Just work not behind my back with my enemies

While fighting as my friend in my presence


Hide not on my rough dark path with daggers

Hide not in any dark path with sharp daggers

While previously opening your hands to host me in your bosom


Be fair to me

Show me your hatred

Show me your fangs

Let your thoughts be your facial mask

Show me your dagger

So I can fight fair

For myself

Then between us, there will be no cowards.

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. :)
