In this stormy era

Where sounds listen to sounds

And birds bed

I’m calling on you;

Yes you:








To stand firm

And taste yourselves

When you’re done,

Please give us detailed reports

On death’s death

Hurt’s hurt,

Hatred’s hatred,

Pain’s pain

Sadness’ sadness

Sickness’s sickness

And Shame’s shame

If you really loved the experience

All will shut up

And let you stay

But if you loathe it

Take the vice versa

Then we’ll call out the other botherers

To follow suit

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. :)

Oh my goodness — only if I can express myself what a beautiful thought it is for death to taste death or pain to taste pain — they will stop being what they are only if they know their taste!! Beautiful and eye-opening! Loved it!!

It’s like can I buy it first and if I don’t like it or if it does fit, then can I return to try another. I love this, of course my interpretation is a little different than what you are saying, but hey that’s me
Great work Cecilia many blessings
