A poor girl sees her friends playing football

In a very crowded hall

Each struggling in pairs

In pleasure and many shares

She is attracted to play

She musteres courage to say

“Please play a ball with me”

With an unknown stranger she sees

It isn’t as nice as it seems

She with pain beams

Oh God! She forgets to protect the net

She concedes goals in a set

Without knowing

Then she sees the score

As she settles long after the core

Out of fear she tells no one

Out of fear she aims to clear the balls in her net like the moon clears the sun

Her net rebels

The ball repels

Both forcing her building to cave in

Whose fault is this?

Teachers or peers?

Parents or society?


Sad, so, so sad.

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. :)
