NEW

(Happy New Year to all followers of amoafowaa.com. Thank you for following, reading, liking, commenting and correcting. You’re the real VVIPs of this blog. May 2021 treat us better, show us love and give us great opportunities. Sending you love from Tamale, Ghana.)

As years peel like a gigantic onion
To shift us through realms of butter and iron
We need grateful hearts of praise
Even as we, the departed to Odomankomah raise

II
Through the phases of the craze
…like determined seeds
We have been able to ourselves amaze
With strength we knew not we had
Through sad and gory stories
…like scattered beads
We have also experienced glories
…picking up our pieces to live on threads of love

III
We know we have to exercise
…to shed body weights unneeded
We know we have to caution exercise
…to avoid creating voids by yielding to dangers unheeded
We know we have to work harder
…so we can get past trauma by having it unseeded

IV
With new things come new opportunities
…calling for the daring and the determined
So add to the determined entities
…and live through the storms with forms which conform not
…to the dictates of brokenness
Do lift your heads in thanksgiving
For we are all VICTORS of a century
Just by crossing over 2020

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. :)
