I travelled to a land so sublime

There was no poignant scent of crime

All things were flowery in their prime

And there was no scent of hurt


Grandma gave me a comfortable seat

On laps which sat on her feet

And asked me to listen to the beat

The beat of beautiful sublimity


I saw my grandpa who I never knew

Met grandma’s mother whom I never knew

And a host of many who I never knew

And watched my family on a TV screen


They back-bited

Fought as soon as money was sighted

With no intention to get united

We watched awed at their shallowness


When they couldn’t stand anymore

They all sent me to the bank of the shore

Making sure I stood at the fore

And told me I had to go back


Tell them, money can’t come here

Tell them, love is our money here

Tell them togetherness is our force here

No matter their wealth, nothing is needed here

And yes, they pushed me, not waiting for my answer

I fell heavily on the pillows of my bed

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’ve seen what money can do turning wine into blood. I’ve seen brothers who were blood no longer want to drink from the same cup. Money will turn the best of people into monster just it’s sake. I hate what it can do . I’ve lost so much because of it. Yet it’s a double edged sword because without it we can’t do much
