There are pointers

That ingratitude, like breath, is inherent

And is produced by the human heart

Like bile is produced by liver


Let mouths wavering mute for a minute

And listen to reason

As validity, like water to the dying thirsty,

Is all


Why will a teething child

Bite mercilessly nipples which still feed

Once he or she is equipped with teeth

Which aids his or her chewing?


Why would teeth bite fingers

When it is in pleasurable chewing

When it is they who help food travel

To their mouths?


Innate, ingratitude

Sorrowful, its existence

Hurtful, its stings

But its existence pushes challenges

And adorn life with excitement and carefulness

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. :)
