What is good about me?
I am a pen
Who shines bright in sadness
Selling my pain
As traders sell their goods
With and without shame

What is so good about me?
I am a pen envied in happiness
Selling success as the sky gives rain
Standing far and untouchable
Receiving bullets of curses
From heard and unheard sources

What is good about me?
No matter what I am
I show my all
If I am a flower
I show my thorns like a priced soldier
My thorns show all blood sucked
Maring my beauty with cruelty
No matter the soap of clearance

What is good about me?
A chirpy hand in all stances
Gratifying the gracious
Satisfying the melancholic
A vulture around funerals
Carving beauties from pain
Always wearing the clothes of all
To feel the pinches and pleasures
Marking references where none sit
I am a bleeding rose
One whose colour is seen by the colours of seasons
What is good about me?
What is good about me?

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. :)
