WHAT CAN BE SAID ABOUT MOTHERS

(Happy Mother’s Day to all Mothers! Sending love and cheers for all that you are.)

You can say mothers are like seas
They are combinations of many emotions
…flowing through so many hearts
And act roads to ferry many to safety
Even when one drowns in the love of a mother
They’re revived as great versions of themselves
So you can say mothers are like seas

II
Mothers are like palm-trees
They can feed us nuts of wisdom
Fry our follies with their oils
Carry us in their bɛdɛ when we’re unwell
Help us burn in energy when we’re down
Make us drunk with their can-do excitement
And act brooms to sweep our problems
Even in their death
…they are akɔkonos which nourish us

III
Mothers are like the earth
We walk on them
Get water from them
Get food from them
Build our abode on them
And still defecate on them
But they still love us enough to revive us
When we bury our hearts in them

IV
You can say mothers are beautiful
No matter their state
They exude beauty of care
Love of tenderness
And wealth of love

V
You can say ayekoo to mothers you see
You can say thank you to mothers around
You can pray for goodwill for mothers
Because mothers create generations to sustain the world

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. :)
