WHO AND WHEN

Fire the furry of a great soldier
Force out his anger like a tease
Carve his temper like a skilled carver
And he will uproot fearlessness
…to plant success on his battlefield
…to keep you safe
Or uproot patience to defy decency to murder you
Learn the different languages of bodies

II
If you fire up the anger of your gardener
And force him to lift your water hose
…to water your cherished flowers
Know he will drown them to their deaths
…forced by his sadness or otherwise
…to spite you
Learn the different languages of bodies


III
Power is good only in great and wise hands
So know the hearts you drive
Know their feasts and beasts
Know the times they play
And ride on the right to gain yours
Life affords this wisdom only to those who listen
…watch
…and learn
It is therein they find their success
…on the wings of talented 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. :)

I am keeping safe. Thanks for the concern. My country is as modern as any growing country is. Google Ghana. Infrastructure might not be as advanced as yours but you’ll be surprised. So come when ready, you’ll love my homeland.
