THE SKILLS OF LUCK

There are people who can blow air into gossip
And turn them into a balloon fish
To poison a community’s mind against you

II
There are people who can craft news
To suit your every bone
Horror as your headgear
Cunning as your clothes
Selfishness as your shoes
Uncouth as your underwear
Wickedness as your wrist watch
And danger as your draft

III
But there are still those who can polish you to suit a masses
And make you the dream of the ordinary
Shocking you with many a lovers unthought of
Such is the world we live
We each have our dangers whose anger can buy strangers
…to hate us
And have gifts whose dedication can make us protagonists
Of a life we dream of
Luck is a skill in it all

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. :)
