I have a voice
But no matter the loudness of the noise
I vote Ghana!

I have a choice
But no matter the decision
I will rejoice
And vote Ghana!

Never will my blood boil
To break the pot
That hosts my waters of life
I vote
I vote Ghana

Never will I pierce the saucepan
That cooks my meals
What will taste the fires and burn
To keep me, mine and ours
Overflowing with generations?
I vote
I vote Ghana

Only one with a disturbed pillow
Seeks to wallow in the fires of insomnia
To hit the drums of disaster
Forgetting his soul in a circle
I vote Ghana
Above all earthly else
A temporary tenant can’t make me break down my house
In exchange for solidarity
Turning me into a rejected vulture
Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2016
