AFRAFRANTƆ AHOƆFƐ

Afrafrantɔ ho fɛ ntumi ndane no ɔkɔreɛ
Mpo adɔfoɔ nisuo ntumi ndane afɔreɛ
…mma no ntu nkɔsi ewiem abakɔnmu
Enhwiren nkɔrimu aaa na ɔbɛfiifii
…atu mu dɛ
Enti gyae afrafrantɔ ahoɔfɛ akyiri di
…na fa w’ahoɔden yɛn ɔkɔreɛ

Ɔkɔreɛ wɔ daakye aniwa

…enniboɔ, efirisɛ sika biara ntumi nfa ne ho ntoto ne ho
Ɔbɛ bɔ adwuma te sɛ ɔsrane a odi sum anim
Ɔbɛ gu nhwiren te sɛ ɔsoro Nyame
Ama afrafrantɔ abusua anyane afiri abɔdeɛmu
…abɛtumu dɛ
Enti gyae afrafrantɔ ahoɔfɛ akyiri di

Na ɛnɛ yi ahoɔfe ntumi nnyɛ daakye ntaban
Ahoɔfe yɛ daakye mprɔyɛ
Enti gyae afrafrantɔ ahoɔfɛ akyiri di
…na fa w’ahoɔden yɛn ɔkɔreɛ
Efirisɛ eduru neɛ ɛyɛ din mpo a

Afrafrantɔ sɛɛ ne hwan na w’akɔ hunu ɔsoro
…n’ankampɛsɛ w’akɔ ka ɛhɔ asumasɛm?

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. :)
