I have seen it all

Going through life in tattered undies

Being kissed and smooched in pure rain

As I smiled to its touches

Tickling trunks of air blowing 

As I closed my eyes to its whistles

And I still remained strong and smiled

Because I am a superwoman


I have lived through it all,

Maternal ailment,

Sibling ailment,

Self ailment,

Friend ailment,

Child ailment

Being taunted by the fear of death

By the fear of vegetation

By the fear of poverty

And I still laugh

Because I am a superwoman


I have gone through a torrential emotional stress

That of happiness,

That of sadness,

Being nursed with fulfilment

And let down by disappointments,

Being cajoled in company

And left in loneliness

But I still smile and laugh

Because I am a superwoman


I have tons to think of

But I still have time to think of others,

Their woes,

Their fears,

Their needed attention

And try as much as possible to fill open voids

While looking into faces and smiling

Because I am superwoman

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. :)
