If Kwaku Ananse’s fate

Of always stirring hate

Incurred many baits

How many would’ve had that death date

Or ended on his webby plate?


Feel the hate

Wait and deflate

The stone-like gate

Of blocked freedom in loving fate

Do this or dear mate, do mate

The hatred until the hurts turn and hammer your pate

Like a nail in wood, till you, this earth evacuate

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. :)

Sadly people use FB as a platform to spew venomous diatribes against others of a different race, religion, political views, etc…. I used to post my poetry in various FB poetry groups but now I stay away for the most part. People hide behind masks or even the Bible using scripture to rip others apart. Now I concentrate mostly on my blogs.


Hate is a voracious cancer for the one harboring it, for society, and for the person/s it is directed at. It is the tool of Satan to destroy us and plant his seeds of destruction. There are times I get on FB only to find someone spewing hatred, malice, and ignorance upon all willing to listen or even chime in. I usually delete that person as I do not want to be associated with such corrosive world views. It is so sad that we are still fostering hate within our hearts and homes. I think the worst thing I’ve seen in many a year is the look of hatred on a small child’s face due to the teachings of the parent. Their twisted, angry countenance quickly sends chills up the spine. Some thrive on hate and causing trouble but that is why we must speak often and loudly against hate. Great work, thank you for sharing your ideals.
