GOD (CRAZY STANZAS)

​In the wake of this take

Make me windbreaks that will all hurdles absorb

Be like the unbreakable bubble surrounding me

Even as rains of drains seek all grains of sanes


II

Ahonu-abobirim!

As a mind which descended from the stairs of a sage

I lay my body before thy feet

Burn the evils in all the rooms of my pores

Boil the hatred in all the pain of my sores

Fry the bitterness in all the dents of my failures

Roast the memories of all the plans of my revenge

Infusing forgiveness where stubbornness dwells

For you are the mighty thumb

Without whom no knot can be untied



III

Ɔkatakyie!

I am like a new born in thy hands

I am like a hatched bird in your nest

Needing your all seeing eyes

Even in this whirlwind of confusion

When the way that leads to you

Is like an unsolvable puzzle


IV

Kasapreko!

Make my skin a tortoise shell

When the arrows of mythical chasers speed for me

Make my chest a magical crest

When unseen bullets fly my way

Wipe my footsteps in this battling sand

So I can lose the snakes which follow my legs’ rakes


V

Omintimirim!

 I have eyes without future light

Brace me for all that awaits

Make for me armours if a battlefield awaits

Make for me a conscience if a rosy field awaits

Most importantly, suck the fury out of my hurry

Planting patience in the soil of my heart


VI

Otwereduampong!

Fallibilities tie my abilities

Need rumbles in the stomach for my feed

Covetousness pulls in the perfection of my seed

As time tick tocks in reminding my fade

And death of all promises other births

In the midst of it all

I wait on my call to you

To mould me through a school perfect for rest

After this earthly explorations

Which cover the memory of transiency
