IF I WERE A SPIRIT

If I were a spirit
I’d work in a pound
…or at least in a dollar
And spend in a cedi

II
If I were a spirit
…I’ll impact in a developing
…and chill in a developed

III
If I were a spirit
I’ll dance in my home
…and meditate in diaspora

IV
Because balancing is not bright
…in this here choice of one
Because living is not right
…in just this slot of one
Because moods always fight
…in this here option of one
Strings fling these thoughts in rings
…oh so scary!
But nothing can be a something
…of a second split
…living wild and free and sombre and sober

V
If I were a spirit
If only I were a spirit
I’d do the impossible to live
…filling all gaps till I still in the ill of mortality
Alas life is a restriction
…a body for a sphere

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. :)
