I am restless

And breathless

What will you have me do?

What can I say to stay there just for a minute?

Will I convince you if I sing in an unheard tongue?

What if I write in a writeless alphabet?

What if I prepare a preparedless meal?

What if I walk on my hands for the rest of my life?

What if I cry tears of a river?

What if I suddenly develop wings and fly?

What if I chew all the weeds on your farm with my teeth?

What if,

What if I take a picture with my eyes and gauge them out

Leaving your picture on the lenses?

What am I to do to have that clasp?

Just try and read my mind

Try harder to see my heart

Try harder to hold me in your thoughts

Just try and have me impose on you just for a little while

Or think to tell me what to do to gain that,

That moment in your arms

And I will gladly do it as long as I’ll live to have my reward.

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. :)
