When a storm uproot mighty trees

And catches the seas in its palms and splatters

Causing sands to hug in marriage

As its anger burns shelters to ashes,

Only brave hearts can brave the storms


When chaos sings a duet with pain

And clapping eyes throw punches insane

Hurts cover possibility of gain

Like a lion guarded cave, hiding treasured stones

Don’t give in too easily into the tombs

Think of the pains of your hatchery wombs

And put on your brave clothes


I know it is windy and you can’t see

I know the dusts are running with their fingers in your eyes

I know trees are dying, taking their oxygen to their graves

But breathe on and brave the heat

Brave hearts always do conquereth the fair

Nothing, nothing absolutely worthy

Ever comes unguarded in sufferance

(In difficult times, we become blind to what God is preparing us for. This poem is for all those who are in difficult situations thinking there are no solutions. No matter what they are, they too, have expiry dates. Trust in yourselves as the conquerors you are and be brave.)

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. :)
