Light is poison

To the eyes of an owl

Its fear of light is like

Human’s fear of darkness


You light your path in the dark

Knowing not you’re woe to an owl

And its generation

And you attribute your snooping to its help?


Flat lies are too shameful

When they walk in daylight

In pencilled heels

In the full glare of known eyes


So light for backdoored flights

Never tell the owl it is for its good

An owl like me needs darkness

To function in living

Know my nature before getting an alibi

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. :)
