It seems like a cloudy morning wearing heat clothes
Headache holds a fiesty cane
Whipping mercilessly
Warning with pain the need for abstainance
From the flowing enticement of Apio
A little sound is cursed echoes of torture
Eyes are like cassava buried in the ground
Being uprooted by a hungry angry man
The heart cries from the pain from all corners
Puffy and generating the mourning shade of red
But the thoughts which caused the body to swim
In the seas of “apio”
Are back with more strength
After being cooked by apio
God of palm
Giver of relief and pain
Please make me sane
Life is making me strain
So no need to flog me a cane
I have learnt
I have learnt and learnt
I have learnt not to cheat
By swimming in the seas of apio
When thoughts turn lionesses
And give me hot chases

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. :)

One reply on “AT THE MERCY OF APIO”

I rarely write responses, however I browsed a ton of remarks here AT
THE MERCY OF APIO | Mum C writes. I actually do have 2 questions for
you if it’s allright. Could it be simply me or do a few of these
responses look as if they are left by brain dead
visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting at other sites,
I would like to follow anything new you have to post.
Would you list of the complete urls of your social pages like your Facebook page, twitter
feed, or linkedin profile?
