NYANE TAKYI

Nyane, nyane Takyi And pluck him from the dreams of illusions Which has painted a heavenly innocence For his troubled reality II Nyane, wake Takyi The mythical evidence that muatia in Ghana did bless actually worked out there In metamorphosis into disgrace Sad it still had a metal hand for slapping III Nyane o, wake […]

DREAMS

Clouds of wishes mostly fall from the sky of dreams Funny how they mostly land in far seas Sending echoes of their ovations and screams Breaking hearts of wannabes Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia © October 27, 2018

PRINCE 1

It started like child’s play As you listened to the naught I say It started like a fake dream A soothing balm on hurt scream Oh a snail’s pace would have won If it was a competition started by a horn But you did creep in, somehow II Now I am left thinking Whether the […]

MEOWS TO ROARING

Once there was a lion Who chanced upon cats in their Zion It saw the fear his picture booked And thought if it could scarily be looked Then surely forever it would reign So its roaring, was day and night’s rain As day walked into a frightening week The cats shivered but noted its weak […]

HAPPINESS

Happiness is always an art Using the senses to break hurdicular fences Happiness is always within Waking smiles even in painful miles II Happiness is seeing the beauty through the filth Hearing the rhythms through the chaos Feeling the air through the hurricanes Loving you in surrounding hate Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia © October 22, 2018

ASSEMBLIES OF GOD OFFINSO

Maybe my engine of worship needs oiling Maybe I have, like Satan, been alienated By blasphemous thoughts which have walked miles from my past Throwing the bitter dust of yesteryears into my spectacled eyes Maybe I am a stranger in a manger of convincing But why me? The smiling sky with fair air Is not […]

A SOOTHING RAP

Clouds are clearing in this dark I can see the hazy moon flanked by its numerous stars Light rays, with their toes, make visible many a mark But breakages have arrested almost all bars Shaking in collapsing Freeing hope of its masking II I can see in drying, tears of dawn I can see in […]

ALWAYS MY BABY IN MY HEART

On this day I severe the placenta of care With the scissors of nonsensical ties Brought forth by atrocious idiocy Nevertheless, you are my baby in my heart II On this day I make you a trap A trap made for heads drunk with bitterness Living in a forest of no- sense Should they step […]

THE TREE OF AUCC

Creativity just walked under the shed of AUCC Re-echoing its bosshood in thought Embracing bosoms ready to blossom Announcing its determination to surpass the fertility its umbrella gives Time’s tongue is yearning to tell tales of Inventions, wordy and active! Visitations thrilling and impacting! Innovations interesting and glorifiable! Trains of goodness hide in steps of […]

IN GRATITUDE

There was a rock that knocked my senses To see hurled life stones Amidst wincing and weeping As materials for building in this storm II You were the ink that gathered my alphabets Even when my pages got wet With rains of my tears To gather for me a crowd of cheers III You are […]

IN MY BODY TEMPLE

Be in my day And have your say Plaster memories so coarse with happiness Tile failures so humiliating with greatness Paint tears with infectious laughter In my body temple II Be in my say And help cut my hay In this perfect sun Help me no downtrodden shun Cover my pain With the beauty of […]

FLY YOUR LAST

So you are aggressively flying here and there When most of your heads are hanging Some in the hands of your owners As your anger of blood gushes out like angry tap water fighting through a small hose Masters, fly your last! II Ei! Look at the mould on your sense Disgustingly hairier than abandoned […]

ALL THIS LOVE FOR TRUMP

Some whirlwinds come for admiration Some do come to blind I have watched you take your world by storm Conquering odds to stand tall through ridiculous gait With hooting superseding ovations Disgust overpowering cheers All the while asking Is all this for Trump? II I bet you didn’t think of the battle on your way […]

ROUGH

Are you a meteorologist of femininity Reading through its seasons to pick? Are you a weather so changing a blue Combing through skies to lick? Are you a fire, burning through seasons to kill? You definitely must be a chameleon, reflective of every passing colour! II You picked me up like sunny season Only to […]

I DO YOU, DON’T DO ME

Mr. says she is evil Who allows more than a pestle to pound in her mortar Mr. says she is petty Who uses the many mortars a pestle pounds into to act same His reason, pestles go whole and come not less Mr. says pestles always come to their original mortars After straying no matter […]

The Sightful Caruthers Tetteh

Mama, I have seen a miracle A miracle which walks eyelessly eyeful An inspirational walking miracle Whose tail has been held by life And used as bait to be placed in a jungle of hardships Mama, but you can’t believe how hardship hides from this soul On its very grounds II Mama, I am in […]

BREAKING THE BREAKING

Let’s break the legs of abuse And force some heads to conscience use Let’s break hurt’s defying legs To put under sanity wisdom’s pegs For many walls weep in their keep And many wills break in their sleep II See the macho hounding a stick None will tell you it is a prick Its are […]
