STRENGTH FOR YOU

Life’s hurdles can heckle like a gangster
…I know
Storms of life can break bodies
…to scatter spirits and beat souls to a pulp
…I know
Fears can stare into eyes to blind
…confuse and infuse dangerous thoughts
…I know all that
But even in the face of life’s tsunamis
Live to cross to victory

II
Just like the sight of a tired walking river
…at the arrival at a sea
Just like the grateful dusty land
…at the taste of rain
Just like a thirsty parched throat
…at a sip of cool water
Hands destined to help uncarry your burdens
…are fast approaching
To execute your problems
…in order to restore your peace
So live
…even when dangerous thoughts dangle defeat
…at your fallen self-esteem

III
For some beauties of life
…are rewards after life’s storms
Some wins of life
…are gifts after winning over murderous hurdles
Some dreams are fruits of trees
…whose branches whip into senselessness
Some dreams can be fruits of trees
…whose branches host haunting bees
So live
Make it a point to live
To win over your woes
…to shame your foes
As you model a conquerer’s victory
Life is beautiful after crossing stormy seas of sorrows

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. :)
