When hands suffer to beat drums

And parched throats wince as they taste rums

Feet must be whipped when they stay calm


As the hands make the sounds

Let the feet do the rounds

Like possessed by the gods who watch


Africa is a dancing god

Africans are dancers for the sun and moon

Only fireflies must be ignored


So dance till sorrows turn sweat

Dance, till sickness regrets

Dance till colours speak for themselves

This light is the light from shinning dark

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. :)
