PRIORITIES AND PRIORITIES

Akua Birago cries for all the monies she has lost
She now sees all little things coming with a cost
She feels so lost

Ib
Kwame Atoapoma thinks loudly about his failed relationship
He thought he had a great friendship
…with her but ended up dumped over small swerved unplanned skinship
He feels like a lost ship

Ic
Yaa Buruwaa says she is tired
…of being fired
…due to company collapses, right after being hired
And says she has job hunting retired

II
All eyes turn to Kwabena-Bena to speak
He looks left and right with a countenance of a freek
And says “Of all the clothes I thought I’d take off with my beak
…I never for once thought mouth cloth will be one to feel my cheek
Let alone act my steak”

III
I saw horror on some faces
Stupor on some faces
Anger on some faces
And humour on some faces
I guess each and their problems
Life forces us to after all, choose our own prioritized emblems

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. :)
