The bald lonely tree 

Gets no sympathy from birds

Even when it is in pain


Birds chirp in dancing

Flying here and hopping there

No weather bother


The tree sits under

Be it hotness or coldness

No deliverance


Who sees its hot tears?

Who knows its coldness and fears?

Who can provide shade?


Poor, poor sad clothed tree

Sitting sadly solemnly

Take it all in faith


A saviour will come

One day when you least  expect

With pure protection

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. :)

Amazing huh? No matter your problems, you dependants still depend on you and will not stop until you depart. Life is like that. We all get to that point of the bald tree sometimes.
