Some see the little peacock

With flowery feathers of different shades

Artfully opened like a colourful fan

Showing hens that they are merely plain


Some see the plain comedian

Immature and never serious

Living large like one immuned to problems 

Hopping like a little bird with a golden crown


Some see a burdened horse

With so many goods and no hooves

Strapped to a carriage overloaded with beings

In hunger with burdened responsibilities

Of taking goods and beings to their destinations


Some see the biblical ant

Working in wisdom like one blessed by God

With a head to kill for

Hands to vie for

Voice to pray for

Without a dent in image


Some see a perfect mother

One who is like a good hen

Protecting, feeding and teaching her young to live

Looking around in great direction

Interested in great details of her family


Some just see the cold hearted tigress

All claws with no heart

Killing Cupidic beings with speed

And feeding on their egos

Listening to none but her brutality


Sad how I identify

With a little of all

Cruel how the notion crown fits

This conscience in bits

Different shades of me

This is the different shades of me

Its reflection cool and crude

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. :)
