Donkeys are nothing

Like monkeys

The former walk like heartless robots

The latter have options to walk, swing or jump


Cats are no bats

The former are forever walking thieves

The latter, forever banished livers of daylight

Each sect nursing its scandal


Fishes have liberties in seas

But know the fact that they can turn dishes

Upon earthers’ wishes so the beauty of birdy flies

Can never bring them out on their own fins


Know you, like I know me

Love you, like I like me

Nurse you, like I nurse me

No matter your stature, you have a fracture

A fracture of wanting an addition

An addition you can never get

Believe it or not, many want additions they find on you

And so it goes

That wanting steals limbs of living

And connives with time

To make you trip on time’s slime

Into a heated hole

On that ride, you realize too late

That you never paused to live

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. :)
