THAT UNREACHABLE FRUIT

I saw a juicy fruit
On a very huge tree
One said to have fruitful seeds
Making “kwaa-brefre” stand at ease

II
Its smell, so potent
Its colour so attractive
A youthful and ripe look
I stretch but can’t fetch
Its tree holds it so high
Why?

III
Thorns are hired to it protect
Leaves are tasked to it shade
I need this fruit
Only this fruit in whole
To make me whole

IV
My seeds I need
To feed from it
My grounds and I need it
To stand so firm
So other trees and plants
Will recognize our stance
Fall like my manna
Ye goody fruit!

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. :)
