ON PRESIDENT’S ORDERS

Dear God,
Beings hide in being
Because a sickness has picked our body bricks
…as home in its quest to destroy us
Sparing few as carriers
Pairing pain in others
Forcing some prematurely to death’s home
And caging the healthy in their homes
Odomankomah
…since the earth is one of your wombs
Please come to our aid before we all end in tombs

II
Some of your prophets Claim Our sins Rolled Over this Naughty Anti-living
…sickness from your hand to us
If that is so
…magnanimity is one of your living qualities
Ahunuabobirim
…order your forgiveness to fall on us

III
All religions believe you have all the solutions
…to every living puzzle
As we hustle through this deadly phase
Otwereduampong
…plant a dream in a deserving mind
To help heal this pan with a dead mic
For our hearts are on hell’s mesh
Making our minds sweat profusely in fear
KasaprΙ›ko
…let your mercy help wash to clean all we are
…and have

IV
You’re an Alpha and also an Omega
You’ve seen all beginning and all ended ending
You’ve the power over all
So doctor our doctored
To lift this curse acting cloud to dangle shrouds
…in our shivering thoughts

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. :)
