LESSONS OF BLESSINGS

If my successes are my bricks
My failures are the mortar which licks
…those bricks to tick my tall
So are yours

II
If my shine is my build
My doom is the very field
…on which the shield of my build stands
So are yours

III
If my laughter makes me
My sadness surely is the saucepan that houses the me
…boiling me fine to this point
So will yours

IV
If my wealth is my blessing
My penury was the vehicle which pushed the lesson
…to reach the blessing
So will yours

V
If my fantasies entice you
My nightmares did ladder it to reach you
…attracting you on a stage you crave
So can yours

VI
Appearances can mate bright lights of stages to deceive
So let no mistake act magic to dwarf you
Let no setback speed on shame roads to trash you
Let no unfortunacy of stones fall to crash you
Let no deceit of unseen swords flaw to shame you
You are one unique being in a realm
And you hold the key to doors only you can make
…or break
Love to build you
From whatever it is you are made of
Living you is attractive to all
When you live you to a height of rightness
Through your comfort packaging

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. :)
