In this deep hot night

All thoughts don’t go right

For no light shone bright

In my dream so I woke with a fright


I saw shadows in high height

Threatening to fly like a kite

And scaring me with all their might

So I screamed at the sight


It could be the political plight

Which has rendered pockets quiet

And stopped all things right

Causing stomach beings to fight


Wills don’t quite

get the message of motivation right

They conquer fright in a fight

As my body join the shadows and my soul watches the sight


All in my soul were tight

The body gave me quite the fright

So I jumped like a kite

Only to fall on my bed in the middle of the night


These travels of the night

Why can’t dreams roam without a bite?

We work real alive only to sometimes sight

Horrors in dreams of the night 

Disappointingly waking in fright

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. :)


For me when my intentions are high, there is always someone there to pull me down. But I can’t get discouraged. For when a heart is pure the devil becomes your witness. There is no sure fire way to stand with your words that speak the truth without someone coming at you. I wish I had an answer but I don’t


It’s funny because usually when I wake from nightmares, I am happy to see that they were just dreams. Your last line, when you say you are disappointed to wake in fright implies what you are waking to is worse than your nightmares. How terrible for some.

That’s true. When you wake and the cause of your nightmare happens to exist in real life; the bills keep piling etc, you are disappointed instead of being relieved Marissa. I guess it really is a terrible for some.
