There is a bunker in every soul
Where dreams, never to be realized scream
Parcelled in regrets never to be mentioned
Regrets which add their marks to eyes
…always as sadness

There is a basement in every spirit
Where aspirations see their expirations
…through impossibility asphyxiations
Asphyxiations caused by fear
…judgements made and unmade
…failure’s future fusses
Adding tears to pillows
…like dawn dew added to each morn
…to the death of hope renew
…each day

It doesn’t matter who you are
You live, at, most, to a near fulfillment
No matter how satisfied you scream
You bear hidden thoughts unlived
…let alone to breathe
Because human needs have no end
One opens the door of another
The other, another
…in an unending greed feed
And we are slaves
…meandering their caves to save our craves
…from scratching sore our unending itches borne out of our insatiable greed

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. :)
