AS YOU WANT IT

A woman is she who wears her crown
…as she wants it
A woman is she who uses her charm
…as she wants it
A woman is she who opens up and closes
…as she wants it
A woman is she who rules and cares
…as she wants it
So use all you’re given
Live all your losses
And make lemonades from all hurled lemons
…as and when they come

II
Live like an artist
…making up and fabulousing fine
Live like a puzzle
…hiding treasures and protecting your shelter
Live like a hunter
…chasing ambitions and shooting stars
Live like a miner
…digging fiercely and refining for shine
Live like a diamond
…shining with rays and hiding in the dark
But work your eyes and ears
…sharpen your hands and feet
…tool your mouth and nose
And live free
Building houses out of stones meant to hurt
And making lemonades out of lemons
For that is the correct order
…of womanhood!

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. :)
