I never knew

I hoarded a stream which bubbled

Until I saw the fish

Which made it vivid

And now I yearn for it to swim


Come and swim

You little wriggly fish

Make my stream dance into a dream

I may pleasurably happily scream

Or painfully turn to laugh and beam

But all it’ll do is fill my cup

So come, undress and swim


You may be caught by sharp sharks

Or may be bitten by a sea snake

But a wily fish must fear no stream

It must move in knowing the comfort zones

So come, undress and swim


Come and swim

And with me dream

If we scream and beam

Our rays will merge

Attracting invisible fishes to come and be

And live to laugh, wriggle and dance

To life’s beautiful wily rhythms

So come, undress and swim

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. :)
