THE WEED THEN KILLER

It slowly rose like smoke Making eyes teary and red Baking minds like loaves for their feed Then became the weed of love Making many kowtow with their all Presenting their successes and their falls It has now graduated to opium and cocaine combined Building addicts out of thinkers II High on this drug-like serve […]

DRESS NOT THE EARTH IN YOUR MESS

Imagine your feet on no solid ground Your ears, no tree in sound Imagine your shelter in a hanging And life without farming Now follow the reasoning II Dress not the earth in your mess Even if you are a pig thinking it a sty For you live in the borrowed And should leave it […]

UNDER THESE SHEETS

Just as socks are made for feet Hats are made for heads This night, my apparel is beadly My walk, a gracious call in passion’s voice For our touches will be sparkly Under these sheets II Clear your eyes For every step will be a language Every shake pointing to treasures hidden beneath pores Clear […]

Ashawo Diaries (Tales of Adwoa Attaa) Chapter 32 (18+)

NTWANU. Content takes precedence over branding but the branding which hosted my Ntwanu was scary. He had turned into a white man. Every part of his body clearly showed he was white. There was no trace of a black man on him, yet he spoke like my Ntwanu, held me like my Ntwanu, acted like […]

SHEs IN TROUSERS

Culture is like a cloth Washed for its stains only to develop other taints Time has travelled to see it merged like “nsaasaawa” Making living confusing in acceptables Making flaws contorting in reprimands Time has washed the myths of trousers Now shes freely live therein II Days which picked females like banku And dipped them […]

THROUGH THIS STORM

Here I am A hair on this blessed earth With weak roots Being played by winds like a piece of kite in the sky And watched by eyes as to how far I can go II Here I am In a fearful storm Blinded by the dust of pain Shamed by the clouds of need […]

Ashawo Diaries (Tales of Adwoa Attaa) Chapter 31 (18+)

No matter your state, a shift will show you the importance of being grateful for any state you’re in. The first and last Mexican prison I tasted was hellish, no other word to describe it. I realized I was immediately sent to prison with no trial. After the metal gates were shut, a very repugnant […]

WHEN THE OKRO ACTS CUCUMBER

A pen never acts manly on an oily sheet And true, both okro and cucumber may share a knife But should never see themselves as equals For the slime in the former makes it a cook and eat And the plainness of the latter makes it an instant chop Well, an “anyhow you want it” […]

AND SHALL SHEs GROW WITH SCARS?

As wisdom drowns amidst time’s wheels And integrity gets tied to death’s heels Many are the ills that like eels walk in heels On talking tiles mocking our helplessness Weird huh? II Gone they seem, those days when caterpillars were peacefully left to turn butterflies And tadpoles were left grow into frogs Now very young […]

DEAR GOSSIP OF MY LIFE

I write this letter in mock reverence of your time You whose mountains of problems hang thorns and stumps On the trees of your dreams Making the closure of your eyes nightmarish And the mattress of your bed hellish Yet find time to look keenly at my strides With eagle eyes when your hawk eyes […]

FOR AUTISM AWARENESS

Blessed are the pure in spirit They are like the cleanest water in a tormenting desert They surely will be there for all Discriminate against none And hate not on any It is a day to wire bells of empathy for a lifetime II He who said broken seeds feed not Has never known hunger […]

THE TURNING CROSS

Days have travelled to a weary feet And now pulls its shocking seat Of time with all its surprises Of change so strange in range II The cross’ significance sit in revered history Of the old and few committed But serve as archaic artifact for many Whose pleasures outweigh biblical interest III Drunkenness in coital […]
