Oh thou phantom without breath

Do I seek your needed concoction 

To have you formed in my boiling pot?


I know you need a mouth to ask

“Why the hesitation?”

Yes, I was so made into this

Yes, and was so brought to this realm

But do I wish this on another?


I could make many few of you

Stirred by one or few ladles with magic juices

To stir, mould and roost you to be here

But can I stand to see you toil as I

In this eat-me-if-you-can realm?


Responsibility is the heaviest cross to carry

Sweet phantom you

If love could make you whole in stay

I know I can give you much to last

But I ask

Do challenges chase your unformed form

In your unformed world

Making you shed unformed sweat?

Are there tears and laughter in pre-oblivion?

Are there pain and sanity in your broken form?

Are you discriminated against in your divided form?

Knowing and not knowing

Which is best?


Dear piece of me

Can’t I just love you without your breathing form?

I could give you a face in mind

A voice in mind

Two beautiful eyes in mind

And make you flawless in this present mode

Then you will suffer no sickness as your elder lives now

Have no tears to call for a scarce handkerchief

And no defect to suffer

And I get to exit the rear doors of the earth smiling

Knowing you are with me

You are for me

You are so safe and will need none

Oh phantom you!!!


Don’t beg to travel here!!!

Here which is nowhere

Here which is not fair

Here which I can hardly bear

Here which nothing is clear

Here where everything fights not square

To save us the torture

And the squeezing pain

Will you heed dear child?

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. :)
