Tell the rancher
Forcing that horse to the river
That he can drag it there
But the keys to its throat only lies within it
Will is the fair checker of Odomankomah

Tell that problem
Dragging you like a sack through pages of mockery
…right to the stages of taunts
That it can drag you all it wants
…through all the grossness it’s got
But your determination, wearing clothes of will,
…has firmly locked the gate of your emotions
…and so giving up and its shame twin
…have no chance of entry
Will is the fair checker of Odomankomah

Many storms can chase you like hungry sharks
Many hurdles can run after you like professional athletes
Many horrors can break you in like tsunamis
But wear the fair checker of Odomankomah
You ankonam battling fears of approaching years
For every day hosts its losses and wins
And yours will never foul or dodge
That fairplay adds to will
…which is Odomankomah’s just checker

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. :)
