When hands touched hands
We hugged and kissed
Laughed and teased
That was what streghtened its stands
We fought poverty
Were each other’s blanket
Cried in each other’s arms
Loved truly in hunger
And prayed for the rains to seize
Then the sun begun to shine
You cried confusion
And started to whine
What changed so fast?
What acted like a catalyst of doom?
What was the taunt that turned to haunt?
Back time traveller
Be no fantasy
Just be my tool and take me back
“Mmre adwane agya me
Ama m’ani sa m’akyi”

Truth. You are gifted to see the truth that others actively ignore. Well written Cecilia.
Thank you very much dear Tina. Blessings.
