Mandarin Duck


Beautiful feathers

Dazzling the world in beauty

Die like the uglies


They can fly like planes

Dive in the sky like fishes:

Still die like uglies


They can bless the sky

With melodies so soothing:

They die like uglies


The order won’t change

They will die like the uglies

No matter their tricks


They can be shot dead

They can be killed by sickness

Just like the others


Nature will never

Discriminate, your time comes

And you leave  sadly


So I’m serving right

My time is precious to me

Please serve your own time


Live, love and fly high

Like the beautiful voiced birds

So you will be missed

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. :)

Nature serves as we do. Beauty is in nature as we are beautiful. There will always be uncertainty as to what life will bring. All time is perilous and shouldn’t be wasted. But life will replace what life takes. It’s sad to loose a life. I’ve seen the lost. Yet I know that the sadness is the seas new to shore
