The peace and serenity

That was with my completeness

Fled into the arms of the savage

Who squashed and swallowed it whole

The moment my guard was down

And the holder of my emotion took charge


Now I am in need

Of that peace and innocence

My maturity makes me weak

And its responsibility weighs me down

Like a permanent mountain

Which has made my head its natural ground


Take me back to the days

When I loved me and looked forward to tomorrow


Take me back to the days

When many manly figures held their shiny swords to defend me in my fantasies


Take me back to the days

When love’s pain was not in existence in my thoughts


Take me back to the days

When smiles of satisfaction at the slightest deed meant more than gold


Take me there

Please take me there

Oh God of innocence

And I promise to be the best servant there is

In that surreal place which has the picturesque of pure peace

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. :)
