KEEP ME, A PRAYER LIKE A TODDLER’S

In your hands

Like the shell of the tortoise on distant lands

Do me keep

 

Draw a boundary

And make it my country

And like a protected bird, make me fly

 

In your band

Like kids play in the sand

Keep me happy

 

I hear the bangs

And teeth of enemies clang

Like a strong umbrella in the fierce rain, hide me and my loves

 

I may not be one of your persons

But life has taught me too many lessons

So like the wood fire at the mercy of rain, put me off and let me keep my wood

 

Yes put me off

And help me my stuff

Fix, until your eternal fire consumes.

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. :)
