I’m looking at you

Looking at me

I’m not sure I like what I see

But then again, I’m not sure you like what you see either

Many may say I’m you

And you are a reflection of me

But wrong,

I can never be you

You can never be me

You’re just a picture being shown to the world

You shamelessly appear where cowards thread

You don’t mind showing yourself in mere water

I can say you are my curse

You cover everything that makes me me

I cannot accept that you have a thought

If you do, why cover mine?

Like a ghost wanting to scare

Your appearance each day deteriorate

And I hate every bit of your pushing into the grave

I can never be you, never!

You’re just a phantom

No one can really arrest you

You can pretend to fly with me in trouble

But you dissipate into thin air

Whenever your lover, darkness, springs

I wish all mirrors will shatter

And all reflective things overtaken by your lover

Then, I think I’ll be fine knowing I walk not with a coward

And a hypocrite

My heart will settle knowing  I will be who I’ll always be;

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. :)
