MOTHER OF THE GONE

Mother of the gone
Who still feels the pain of the born
As sadness toots its horn
With no hope of living till dawn
There sure is a morn
So live through your torn

II
I know you picture earth’s heat
As it, like a disgusting glutton, your precious eats
I know you’re feeling self-blame’s beat
As it calls your living a shameful cheat
I know your strength depletes
…nothing seems complete
…and every comfort seems like a goat’s bleat
As the warrior in you feels the loss of defeat
Channel the pain, disdain acting bane
…to drive you insane
Into your inner strength and stand on hope’s feet

III
Because you must live for the departed
…to inspire your future shadows so they’ll be positively impacted
Oh you must tread on those thorns of hurts
To shame haunting suicidal bets
You must brave through the hunger
…graduate to gluttony and leave behind thoughts of the loving manger now a remembering danger
You must reach the podium of testimony as a self revivor
…to gain the title of a great survivor
You must tune you to the highest channel of love even in self hatred
For you are more than the hatred
…wanting your heart-land to plant a fail
Live for your born in gone to your pride’s tail
…it always gets better with time
So above all things, live as the pains chime
Until the fog of despair clears for your life to, with the sun, rhyme

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. :)
