CITY OF THORNS (CRAZY STANZAS)

Like bats, make us fly together

We are trees on same land with different grounds

A loud “paaa, pooom, peii” must raise our concerns

II

While our heads have nations with different thought legs,

Their frames have carvings so similar in supplementation

Their thought deeds have beautiful uglies

Causing real pain to differing acts

Which eyes watch in awe

III

We are the leaves waiting for fires, fearing its roasting

Why then do we set fire in other “wes”?

If we were stones on grounds of no blasters,

If we were mountains on grounds of no blasting lightning,

If we were waterfalls hidden from eyes

Knowing our sounds will attract no ears,

We could live without flocking

Shaming togetherness

To flee with awareness

Too bad we aren’t

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. :)
