And the Dr. said to calm

They would never do her harm

But on whose ticket was she there?

School fees of needers?

Feeders of hunger?

And the pressure tend to be up

She didn’t want to be there

Dr. flips; “You can’t tell me what to do”

Her anger, the patient’s anger

Araba knew the better one had to give in

And there came a friend and an angel

Who brought a superior and calmed her heart

And said she could go home after her life was assured

And there it was

That after many infusions

And unnecessary suspectings

She sailed into the bed she loved

With chest aches and feelings of weakness

And a sore throat like a known visitor

And still, the many who depend on her

Must suffer for these spendings

Better yet, more months are ahead

For them to receive help

This life is a sad life

But she knows she won’t regret

Even if it ends

For in her short life, she has lived,

impacted and loved

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. :)
