WHEN YOU PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE

When you put yourself out there
You turn into a field football with no owner
Many a leg will share you in a manner unfair
And play you till your air blasts into a thin corner
So beware

II
For there are some who want to score you for their goals
There are some who will want to hold you near their poles
There are some who will want to play you into a foul station
And there are some who will want to dribble you to attract an ovation
So please beware

III
There will be some who will want to play you to burst
There are some who will want to bath you with dust
There are some who will want to watch you being played
And there are some who will want to act commentators to your being played
So just beware

IV
Some can just place on you a bet
Reducing your humanity into a game pet
Some will just love to cheer others
As they cut into your leathers
Oh beware

V
For the field of fame
Is nothing but a puppeteering game
You get played and receive the blame
Should something soil your name
So beware
Just beware
So as not to be destroyed on a field
Whose park, immortality wields without a shield
All it takes is your fall
For another to step into your shoes in the lightening hall

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. :)

Dear Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia. I love your work. I would buy your book and your words should be read by more people. Us, who love to write. We must show the real world to other people. I hope you are doing well and staying safe.
