DEAR EARTH

Dear Earth
Thank you for embracing
…and cuddling
…and feeding
…and healing
…and entertaining
…and challenging me
There are many horrors you experience
Our erosion which causes your fertility demotion
Is a shame
Yet we hold our flaws like flags
…hoisting it to do further damage
…everyday
Your trees feed us
But we slaughter them like fowls without replacing them
Your sky covereth us
But we smoke it dry and face its wrath
Your waters quench our thirst
But we litter them
…poison them
…block them only to face their wrath
But we do not learn
I call you Asaase Yaa
I call you Ɔbaatan pa
I call you Ɔdɔ anoboa
I call you our nsiakyibaa
But I hope we see your magnanimity
In order to step on our breaks of mistakes
To have you house us and our generations unborn
In the forever you have been built to be

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. :)
