IN HER SPEECH (For Kamala Harris)

Oh saints can you hear
The voice which I hear
Which calms all kinds of choices
And encourages great voices
…to rise to the call of their ambitions
A voice which has given us one perfect rendition
…of dreams coming true
Marking the fact
…that the stars are in the blue

II
She is a hand which has opened a door
…and intends to keep it broken
To welcome worthy others to same
…or through same
To higher floors

III
She is a multiplicity of many in one representation
From Black to Indian
Jamaican to American
A woman who mothers with thoughts
That all children are children
Not just the ones who come from her womb

III
She is one whose skin bruised not
…from ridicule
And her big heart scarred not
…from bitterness
Oh she is a Black lather
…helping to reach the peak of respect
One destined to put wealth on coloured skin
By acting chameleon to mirror us all

IV
I hail a queen destined to lead through the audacity of a great Biden
One who recognizes the many tears
…which watered the paths which led her up
And sees the tons of blood
Which cleared thorns of impossibilities
…to get her here
Prayers to the gods are in order
…for her protection
So she lives a greatness
…to hail us all
…in her shine

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. :)

Remember, it is what you do. Not what you said. Her congress and senate forgot to pass the coronaviras bill. People, who change to make another content. Who are they? Be, who you are. Promises are made to be broken. She is a career politician. Her and Biden, never tasted hunger or disappointment. New world for USA. We are walking on wishes. Must have money to have free college. Biden want to raise taxes and the middle class will pay again. USA 27 trillion in debt to China. I pray your leader are more honest than the USA leaders. They promise you everything and give you very little. Need money my dear friend. USA don’t have no-more.
