THANDI

You’ve seen the spot
…and is catching a lot
…of strength
…in your learning length
And I’m awed!

II
You’ve bought a lot
Of hurts right from your cot
But I’m so glad for the many a dot
…I’ve opened your eyes to see as hot
…in connecting

III
And as you are this hooked
All who looked and booked your crookedness
…will fail
They will fail
For I’ll unfold your wings
…and throw you up to fly
…the sky so high
They’ll cry
…they’ll so cry

IV
I’m amazed an eagle like you lived a chicken
…being cut for pieces in a licking
I’m shocked a lioness like you lived a cat
…cuddled and trapped in prisons of emotions
…strapped by confusions
…mere confusions
I see a sky a blind man walks on
…with his head
…thinking him genius
But I’m so showing you how to cloud
…to thunder
…to strike a lightning
…to order airs to turn winds and tsunamis
And to rain to flood to wake some stakes
…through shaking
…through shaking
To help you gain your silver linen

V
For it is a world where eagles acting fowls die
…before their strong wings taste best skies
It is a world where lionesses acting cats
…are trapped into sacks and killed
…before their best hunting
And I’ll be so damned
…if I unleash not my magic wand
…to turn your strandedness into a levelled high handedness
…to enable you fly with your befitting mates
…and to help you roar with your peers
To get the cheers of your dears

VI
It sure will be a crime
…to not live your shrine
And welcome your deserving worshippers
…feel in your tastebuds the libations of honour
And see in other eyes the priceless reverence
…of your existence
You’re a gem
…a shinning gem you and I have found
…in an abandoned castle, and you’re so polishing you to shine

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. :)
