Ib
I slipped through the slide of M to taste life
…thanks to the great formation of F
To know the O of S equalling T
…no matter the H and D I had
E through Hb was my only bridge to comfort

II
I knew life could help me get K
And fate could help me get L
So I took to N with Z
…and dragged along my Y
…getting lucky with X who became ropes of hope
…birthing my G

III
I had no A and got many B
But I stayed C using H in Hb coupled with street struggles
…to soldier the battlefield of hurdles
QP started showering S
…as U and P predicted W for a future I knew not

IV
Now through R I’ve shed some of my T
L has bitten me in many ways
…but now gifts to thaw its iced hate
And my A has turned to happiness
Life is a struggle where livers need to conquer
To set the sun on their smiles

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. :)
