BABY NAYOKA

There is a saying that worse lurks
…in a realm where bad stares
And worst also hovers
…in that same realm
I never equated this to beings in walking character
…until this day
Baby Nayoka, you’re a wonder in the horrid realm

II
How did you end up
…this vile and hateful?
How do you sleep
…when you’re this horrible and distasteful?
How do people breathe around a foul mouthed human like you?
I’ve seen you only for a day
But I see the tip toeing around you
The right backbiting to your missile living
And the hateful stares your bizaar attitude harvests for you
Just how do you live?
Baby Nayoka, you’re a wonder in the horrid realm

III
None can please you
Even if they act Jesuses to your Judas
None can make you laugh
Even when they act baboons to your conceited insinuations
None can be good enough
Even if they act monks and live like flawless gods
From your legs which have spent monies worth a Pajero
…due to rituals out to get you
To you being part of the presbytery
Right to your queenly status;
…and I wonder the soreness of the knees of your subjects,
All these are made known by your own self
…in a minute after your acquaintance
Do you not think others might be heavens to your skydom?

IV
I cry for the beings around your being
I weep for the eyes around your being
I wonder the tears you harvest each day
…from the eyes of innocent souls
I know mouths
…never get to say a thing around you
Seeing the half hearted hails and fans in your presence
…and the curses in your absence
You’ve been made a hateful goddess
Only worshiped when your ears stand to listen
You really are a sad situation
…and a living confusion
Baby Nayoka, you’re a wonder in the horrid realm

V
I hope a truth slaps your attitude to wake
Before death taunts to take you
For beings like you live longest
…cry loudest
…suffer most
…and rot in rooms
…before real death catches your souls
To hover and see
The relief on faces thanks to your gone
I pray change finds you
…before your hellish end
For no rot from a being is without stinking
But yours, all thanks to your small money, surpasses all others

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. :)

More than what you describe. No one, not even one person could do right around her. It was just miserable watching. To cap it up, I had to deal with her for a whole day, serving, apologizing, and suckling it up because she is related to my friend’s groom. It was sad watching a human being live that way.
