Machete in a stick

On heart without a heart

Machete in command

Like a crazed soldier with a loaded gun

Machete in the dark

Wielded by a faceless shortish imp

I have cursed thee a million times

Cursed thee and thy descendants

Cursed thee until thy death

So be not proud of your stolen possessions



After your scare

I have thought through many ways I could’ve thwarted

Thought through many ways I could have harmed thee

Thought through many ways I could have cursed thee to thy face

But I guess leaving thee to succeed was the wisest decision I ever made

Itching fingers in dangerous games

Brave thoughts which has fire as game

You will meet your volcanoes

Which will erupt and burn you and your descendants

You will forget this 18th day of May

As you add up your escapades

But long after 2015’s skeleton has powdered

You shall receive thy punishment in torrents which will make thee wonder

Torrents which will make thee scream

Torrents which will make thee surrender

Torrents which will make thee wish for death

But alas, it will be too late

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. :)

Cecilia, I am so sorry you endured such a horrific experience but I am glad you came out of it alive. I know that doesn’t mean you came out of it unscathed, for there are internal scars that must be attended too. I was mugged once by two men and thankfully they just ran away with their stolen goods without harming me. It was a terrible experience but life went on, obviously.

My prayers never left you during your break and I praise God for providing his protection over you in this horrific event. I pray peace and healing for you as you recover from this injustice. Be well, my friend and welcome back.

Bless you too. I know we are getting closer. There is the Ghana Poetry Festival coming up next week Saturday so I am a bit tight. Will send you everything you need next week.
