MISSING EDGES OF THE SWORD

I may be nothing

Nothing worth something

To have touched hearts of the future

To openly declare

II

I hate being a plantain tree

Peeling off my leaves while growing others

But I love that most peeled,

Climb for the heavens

After falling off me

III

A thought of a goner

And this heart flutters

A thought of a goner

And I am like an empty bucket

Although there are more eyes in replacement

Must this be an annual ritual?

IV

With my hands stretched

I reach for all dreams

Befitting the future

And hang them on ladders of hardwork

For their picking

V

With these arms stretched

I reach for protection

Protection and great affection in all sane ambitions

For the future to be held safe

So the missings from both ends will be worthy

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 lovely poem for this time of the year! So many goodbyes; and the yet to be known hellos aren’t ‘real’ yet. The annual ritual–reaching out and letting go at the same time, knowing some will and some won’t make it.

Yes. Especially when we can look back over time and see what happened. I think your vision of what you offer is wonderful. Not magic, but empowering when heeded. And even then, things happen….
