There are mosquitoes singing tunes many abhor
In rooms detested
There are bed bugs battling bodies
For blood on beds many hate
There are many fighting animals like people with consciences
Just for rivers and foods and places and growth
Through it all
We sleep soundly
Sons and daughters of the earth beg for rain
In the abundance of storms
Our roofs are no longer tame
Yet, we sleep soundly
I had a scary dream
A dream that insulted my heritage
Characterising the celebrated as Orwell did his Animal Farm
Fires raged lighted by their matchless mouths
Storms wrestled
Broken by their heartful heartlessness
Their cruelty woke nature to fight us off
Off our blessed territory
Into the dungeons of death
I woke in a sea of sweat
And realised I woke to a sound terrain
Peace of mind is not for sale
They could not steal our faith and hope
Tell them we found gold in our hearts; the kind of gold their greed cannot mine
We are formidable
We are the remnants of creeds born before war
We have licked the fires of chaos
And belched the gentle breezes of calm seas.
If we are the truth your minds know but refuse to profess
Then we are saved
A mind will know the ultimate perfection Lies not in war
Another will know strength must be used
To build nations not human idols
Another will see chaotic snakes crawling from forests of deception
And kill them with wisdom
Another will enlighten lazy minds
Which hate to take up the hunt of thinking
Keeping them in sage zones
Helping us weed out dreams like those which graze dreams to ashes
And yes soundly we will sleep
Dreamless sleep, for time is here to act
Vuvuzele and ram-horn this to the edges of our minds and lands:
The time for battle is long past, our fathers paid for this season with their blood
Can you not see the fire that stirs within our embraces
It reeks of wisdom and oneness and strength to forge eternity
An eternity of Africa and the centre of it all
We shall speak our wisdom of mind freely and the seas will not boil
You are my kinsman and you are a diligent keeper of time
Let the world see and hear how we cleaned our house of secrets to shame WAR

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. :)
