BREATH OF TOIL

Photo0030

Take the breaths of toil

Please take the breaths of dead toil

You can give it a hot boil

 To stop it from decomposition,

Fertilisation and growing to cause commotion

II

Ama Akyaa’s dead grandmother’s hatred

For Akosua Doku’s dead grandfather

Has no reason to live to this moment

Causing pain, havoc and fear

And generating hurts which never recoil

Please take the breaths of toil

 III

Alhassan’s father’s death

 Which was blamed spiritually on Dokurugu’ grandfather

 Should still not wield machetes of murder

 Creating orphans and weaving widows

Who look for arrows to seek hearts of tomorrow

To drown in sorrow

Please All- Seeing-God take the breath of toil

IV

Take the breath of toil

Breath of the toil of ethnic diversity

Take the breath of toil

Breath of the toil of racial controversies

Take the breath of toil

Breath of the toil of abject poverty

 Please take the breath of toil

 Breath of the toil of recurring sicknesses

 Take the breath of toil

Breath of the toil of destructive jealousy

Please take the breath

Breath of all causes of negativity and death

To aid peace and promote creativity

 In living for all livers
