Weak? No! Never!

Flowers from Ghana are never weak

And I’ll tell you why


Long ago, while warriors were killed

And the king was caught

And what bravers  there were hid,

Yaa Asantewaa stood tall

And she was a flower from Ghana


Even those who raised their hands

And flagged gender opposites as lords,

Mostly birthed, farmed, domestically worked

More than the lords,

Could those flowers be weak?


Beijing helped

As shadows brought their beings

Into the spotlight

Pursuing the freedom fight

But let me not hear you say

We are weak flowers,

We are bold flowers

Flowers capable of all

If only all subduction will die off

In minds of our wilting flowers

We can fly like planes

Even in bad weather
