WHERE MOUTHS STAND

We want to climb
By keeping many a rotten limbs
We want to soar
But carnivorous lions
…deceit
…corruption
…greed
…family connections
….sluggishness
…politricking
Keep tearing off our wings
How do we climb to the peak of development?

II
We must learn
Learn it takes burying our rot
…to grow our new
We must learn
Learn it takes shedding off our skin
…to dry the new to smoothens
We must learn
Learn it takes several pates
…to climb in order to open the gate of growth
None can grow by throwing words
…into the sluggishness of the winds

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. :)
