Mama said I needed a man

A man who will care and be my fan

A man who will take an arrow

And hide me in his shadow

But she warned me not to borrow

Or I will get stuck when I become an unknown widow


Mama said I needed a clan

To form the clan, I needed a man

To get a man, I needed a plan

A plan to make one mellow

By being all his sorrow

As that will make him follow


I may not have gotten her brainy umbrella

Because I felt I needed a plan

A plan to be free like a man

A plan to do a happy dance even without an erect timber like a man’s

So I took the chance

But mama’s voice makes me feel failed

Yes failed, even with wings to fly

For the shadow and her plans for clan’s test,

I failed miserably

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. :)
