The tree stands in glamour

Attracting birds

Attracting bees

Attracting monkeys

Attracting snakes

Attracting eyes

And singing hymns


None cares

About the fallen leaves

Which was high above

And has served its time

They step on them, hailing the new

And ignoring their pain

Although their work is not done


Like an unwanted

They live at the mercy of legs

The winds

And the rains

While they rot

On their way home

Home to fertilisation and blessings for the tree


It might not be fair

It might not be good

But that must be known to be crude

I send strength for the fallen

Strength for the fallen leaves

You are the most important part

Of the tree, keep strengthening the land

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. :)
