A PART OF MOTHER

A part of mother feels very numb
When news of her children molested and murdered are reported
Because she is a farm untended
A blessing intended
And a sure blossom which must be attended
…to

II
A part of mother feels odd
When news of her regal children report them slaves
For she has comfort even for animals in her caves
And loving arms for all in her home

III
A part of mother feels haunted
When news of her children are reported in sordid tales
For her best are mostly the fled
…ambitious
…driven
…determined
…hardworking
She wonders why they’re cast as worst

IV
A part of mother wails
As pens have now turned to guns
For love sits in her heart for them
Heaven hides in hardwork on her
So she wonders why they prefer hell
…in their heaven quest when the best they get is a hellish haven

V
A part of mother collapses
When ignoramuses touch dead her beloveds
For she knows how their connivers hunt her wealth
And their condoners save their crimes

V
A part of mother cries out in desperation
Saying:
“If only my children will farm me!
If only my children will work my land!
If only my children will love me enough
…to protect me!
If only my children will see me for all the wealth thieves see and chase after!
Then black skin dyes would’ve taken over Asia
Just as thick lips and buttocks are taking over the world
And make Blacks the wonder
That all surrender
…to”

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. :)

Oh Mama Africa!
You indulge your degenerate boys.
You could not protect your valiant sons and daughters.
They were cut off cut down.
When they wove the clothes for all and cooked for all.
You looked on when their unthinking inward looking brat brothers grew aberrant and destroyed.
You could not keep the pot of rally and bonding from the selfish ravages of your greed accused sons.
But we dream to live the days where you were our sacred KWAE OF NPINTIM AND DANCE AND INDUSTRY.
We pledge to break loose the chains of illiberal avarice.
