​LIKE WATER

Kokrokooooo!
Gather all ye unhappy hens

From the coops of your watching owners

Gather, ye who need chicks to follow their cocks

Come all ye aggrieved

Water has lessons to show


II

It tastes heavens and licks the earth

It knows the hearts of mountains and

The feet of the earth

It convenes to carry ships and boats

While feeding as many as wishes

But none has seen and tasted rear foods

In their horribilities like it


III

It knows the human body like no other

It is a big part of the living factor

Pushing filth and running grace

Yes, it evaporates in too high a heat for rebirth

And metamorphoses into  stone in severe cold

But returns to its normal form

And keeps doing its natural chores


IV

When blocked, it can kill at will

But still, water’s bill is a thing none can fill

And its benevolent height is a hill none can till

No living can be without water

Shape all forms as you want

Be like water

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. :)
