PATH? GIVE ME A MACHETE

doormat2 Grandma was no doormat

She had three husbands

Husbands she gave three lives each

And the earth took one from each

2401_doormat

Mother was a direct opposite

A doormat used by three

And taken by one who stepped harder

Through her journey of five lands

In nine moons apace

The three lands she had journeyed

Gave her three gifts

And her weak nature

Coupled with the irony of giving the world eight gifts

Weighed her down 

Here I am

Thinking of what I am

Certainly don’t want to feel the pain of being stepped on

Certainly don’t want to be the traveller of many lands

Certainly don’t want to be the traveller with no aid

I certainly am me

Oh ye creator of earth paths!

I scream and cry in pain of my path

You should have given me a machete

So I could clear any path I wanted

Paths are burdens immobile

And I feel the weight of immobility

Please help me if you hea

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. :)

I have noticed you don’t monetize your blog, don’t waste your
traffic, you can earn extra bucks every month because you’ve got hi quality
content. If you want to know how to make extra bucks, search for: Ercannou’s essential tools best adsense alternative

Dearest Cecilia,

Your intellect and words are your machete. No man will ever own you, use you, abuse you, and force you to live a life in which you have no interest. It can be so daunting to look around and feel overwhelmed and stuck but you have already won. Your words have escaped your world and they invite all to see and understand. The floodgates will open for you have chipped a hole through the dam and nothing can stop it now.

lovely! I wish I could compose something as inspiring and lovely as the ones you do.

It is advisable for everyone to view this
both young and old. If you don’t have
megabytes to view this, copy the link. It
is important so I thought I should share
it.
