GLITTERS AND GOLD

Sometimes
…we see the sky on earth
…and the earth in the sky
Sometimes
…we see the flight of fishes
…and stars swimming in the sea
Ignorant heads call us mad
But those blessed with additional eyes
…see best the true forms of living


Sometimes
…frowns are smiles
…and smiles are frowns
Sometimes
…laughter is tears
…and tears is laughter
Sometimes
…life is death
…and death is life
It is only the unfeeling
…who sees surface as surface in a spirited soul


Sometimes
…blessed eyes see the struggles of winners
…and the relaxation in losers
Chants can’t rant their can’ts
Until spittle run into little
So look to see
Listen to hear
Smell before tasting
Look left and right
…up and down
Before a judgment
Discernment needs complete assessment for its accuracy –
…sometimes

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. :)
