We all know but refuse to acknowledge

It hides, calm like a lioness about to hunt,

Giving its prey silence to encourage

It to draw near for a catch so easily blunt

When its growth goes far beyond its storage

Its dreadful fumes will become abundant

It has no brain, everyone can confess

It destroys, so much that none can reverse



It is the shadow you don’t want to know

It is the destroyer without a being

It is the fearsome fire which waits to blow

It is the catastrophe none needs seen

And its aftermath forces knees to kowtow

It can run through us all even our gene

Call it anger, rage, fury or madness

Just know its needs, put a bar on its highness

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. :)
