If you know not the taker

Please give me your ears

Listen and listen through

And see its feet


Like sleep

It takes to control

Like wood

It climbs till it’s bored


Like God

It darkens in sleep

Like God

It lightens in sleep


No shoes

No eye can see, no ears can hear

No being

No air can bluff


So work

As you’re awake

And love

As it rehearses on you daily


For when it is time

It takes with no bell

Then, you’ll have

No mouth to complain nor curse

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. :)
