Grind the hurtful past

Into a debris of dust

Walk on in comfort


The winds will see fit

It’s route of traceless exit

Once you are long gone


Even pigs eat far

From their defecation zone

To give life respect


Many eyes will look

Many lazy pens will book

Ignore pap’razi


Stars shine bright in dark

Not in flawless bright day light

So put up a fight


I loath my dark past

So I grind them into dust

And gladly walk on


There are the whirlwinds

Which give them life to stand tall

Sometimes, to haunt you


Even that affair melts

They die sooner in their scare

Face it square and fair


Waves aid beings to walk

Run, jump, turn rightly on seas

For fun and to land


So I entreat you

To walk on its dust or play

Sea games to reach land

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. :)

We are our lives. Those who judge us must judge themselves too. Our lives are not the stamp to be mailed or a label to be said. These lives were meant for lessons to be learned. So that when next we come we won’t be lost or misunderstood. A new block, in which to build.. Judge, label, stamp, oh the pain of it all. No, they are the roots of a tree for without this tree we would fall.
