The chicks scurry off

Trying to hide from the hawks

Their wings cannot fly

Their weak chirping are not heard

They see the shade of hawk frames


Their mothers weep loud

To their fathers who sigh loud

They try to set traps

The specific trap breaks fight

Whose must be the potent one?


They fight and break wings

Curse, cry, murder, rage and kill

Until they see right

Dust swells and they cry for help

When they have tools and manpower


Eagles are employed

Their trait of hunting not clear

They seriously work

It still persists, they realise

That the help hired was a reverse

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. :)
