OSAGYEFO

I wish our generation have many like you
We’d have been saved from many a blue
And would’ve reached many development dawns
As compared to acting like hunger prawns

II
Your mission through your visions
Right to many of your decisions
Brought us life
Life which is being suffocated and giving us strife
Through inabilities parcelled as abilities
And calamities from our iniquities

III
It is amazing how your handiworks still feed us
It is sad how your early loss still bind and scar us
It is horrible how we weaned not from suckling
…the breasts you moulded, making us many a weakling
I wish regrets could bring the dead back to life
Many of us would have given our lives
…to you, in honour, receive

IV
Your swift actions are truly missed!
Your great foresight is dearly missed!
You were a lion ruling well in a world where hyenas rule
…by manipulating a lion into a mule
A mule which fitted not your rule
So you had to be kicked out like a bull
But we’re still grateful for your signature
…on our once vibrant stature

V
Keep on resting well Osagyefo
There aren’t many like you we can call asaagyefo
Keep on resting in power Doctor
Even as others, your efforts, try to doctor
We live with you in our hearts as a prompt of patriotism
No matter how much you’re pushed out of history with egotism
For your mark will live forever
…even in the after ever

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. :)
