Take them off

Take them all off and leave me naked

So naked as the day I was born

And make sure all my troubles are gone


Take them all off, all off!
The clothes of labelling

The clothes of gender

Take off the clothes of need

And help me feed


I say take them off!
Take off the clothes of pain,

The clothes loneliness

Take off the clothes of ill health

And leave me stark naked in good health


Oooh take them off!
Take off the clothes of hatred

The clothes of tiredness

The clothes of thoughts

And peel the pants of prostitution

Take off the clothes!

Undress me!

Leave me as pure as the day I was born

Without thought horns

Without fear of thorns

Take me out of this jungle

Yes, out of this jungle of flowering tornadoes

Back through the womb rivers

Into the hole of the snake who spit me out

Until I reach the heaven of waist sack

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. :)

What a wonderful poem, what a great message, that we could all live in harmony, rather than all this never ending strife. Very moving, I think I will re-blog this, and share on Facebook and G+. Best wishes and blessing, Charles.
