Why did we not get rods?
Why did we not get skies?
Why did we not get water
To easily slip and hide in the land?

Why did we not get moons?
Why did we not get stars?
Why did we not get airs
To escape when enemies chase?

You gave us lands
Which vary
Some attract good gardeners
Who plant flowers
And all that feeds all
Including our lands

Some attract thieves
Who dig for gold
And leave holes with depths untold
Collecting rains which wound our lands
And cause more harm
Than monstrous demons

Some attract none
So weeds do play
Strays use as bays
And when they last in age and time
They do decay
After their sand turn clay
And end as mud
Which sit in white elephancy
We keep lands
Like security men do banks
Who knows when thieves can break through?
We are unfortunate
We women

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. :)
