A TIME OF SILENCE

Eyes well shut
Mind on ready
…to go back to yesterday
…walk back to today
…and fly to and fro the future
And I saw a great structure

II
A structure of growth
…failure
…wins
…hardwork
…love
…support
…opposition
…hatred
…conflict
…Friction
Which all have blessed me with many a diction

III
Why I cried my loses
…and celebrated not my wins
Why I fought my opponents
And embraced not my supporters
Why I angered in my friction
And enjoyed not my loving
…leads me like a lamb
…to a place of deception of self
…a palace of failure for soul
…and a realm of disdain by my spirit

IV
These lessons are blessings
…needed in my structure
…moving forward
So I’ll celebrate my wins
…no matter how little
I’ll enjoy my loving
…no matter how subtle
…and give back in memories unforgettable
I’ll hug my supporters
…and embrace their struggles
…noting their sacrifices
In thankfulness

V
For my woes are for my foes
And my wins are to lift my chin
…and not throw me in hateful bins
Now I know the world revolves around all emotions:
…good and bad

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. :)
