EBONY GOES HOME

Daring was her nature

Beautiful was her stature

Much talent was hosted in her bubbly frame

The head of youth popping out of her character at every juncture

Defying norms and soothing ears

Representing her in the past tense makes me tense

Yet a greater hand has beckoned

Who is this mouth to ask why?

II

Her clock stopped before her birthday station

And her loss halted a whole nation

Half of whose mouths whipped in critical damnation

A beautiful bloom broken into our doom

Ebony, the blackest star which centered the musical red, gold and green

III

Home is where all our ends rest

As you go, come back rejuvenated

To change many more status quos

To touch more lives

To show the world how to live in fitting individual skins

To smile brightest and laugh loudest

In the black apparel nature gave which many blessed souls want changed

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. :)
