We crave for confusion

Why do I say so?

The white craves blackness

The black craves whiteness

And so we complain to the air

See the white talking in creole

Or is it in blackness?

And see many claiming superiority

Probably because of lack of self confidence of their existence

Now see the blacks

Bleaching their skin

Throwing away the melanin many are craving for

See them craving for rosy cheeks

Which fits them not

And wearing long weaves

Making caricatures of themselves

And crying for equality

As though they seem to think they are not humans


As if that is not enough

We now crave for things of animals

Animal claws

Animal eye colours

And we crave for the earth’s

Golden teeth

Silver teeth


The creator should have made us so equal

In height


In facial

In colour

So we will always strive to see

Who is who

Because we crave confusion

So confusion we should have gotten

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. :)


There is no pleasing some no matter what the it is. Life is hungry. Life is full. Life has those of plenty. Life has those of none. This the balance. We can’t change the all of life. All we can change is how we look at it or How we speak
