THIS COVLIVING

Why future’s bells rang not
…in warning
Why a virus’ wires sparked not
…for a knowing
Why many a fear piled on pates after pates
…to distort our fate
Drive madness on killing roads
…in fearful vehicles

We must go and we must come
We must sell and care for our kids
We must mask up and adhere to distance
We must travel just up and down
Even as our men demand their rights
…most nights

How did we get here?
Free to hustle one moment
Imprisoned to hustle in another
How did we get here?
Free to hug one moment
Terrified to laugh together in another moment?
How did we get here?
Free from worry one moment
Filled with worry for our family in another

These are abnormal times
Risks walking on mythically noisy legs
But we strive to survive
That is our strength after all

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. :)
