“No way sideways

No way forward

Certainly can’t go backwards

I must hang in the sky

To be visible to the world”

That has become the only codification for shining


“No smooth way to hang in the sky

No smooth way to stand in the sunlight that throws rays of satisfaction

No smooth way to have tongues wagging in reverence

No smooth way to live heavenly

I have to make a human staircase

Climbing the unclimbables, walking on heads regardless of the sores

In fact, the sorer the better

As the louder the wince of pain the many eyes will turn”

That is the school of society.


Who wants to be the one with the sore head?

Who wants to be the door mat forever?

We all came from wombs with clean slates

It is your fashion which holds our hands to write the good, the bad and the ugly

Yet you scream your disgust at every scripting

It is amazing how I am part of the whole

It is amazing how you are part of the whole

It is amazing how we are all part of the whole

Yet scream at ourselves when we each have slates,

Slates with hidden codifications which will pop up some day for a massive appreciation,

Than the one you are doing now on some others.

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. :)
