MEASURED

Like the sun which rises to fall
Like the moon which shines to dim
Like the water which solidifies to thaw
Like the winds which grow wild with fury to calm
Like the waters with waves which recede
Like the ships which sail to dock
Like the birds which fly to perch
Like the clouds which form to rain
Like engines which work to break
Life parallels power
Their births are celebrated
Only for their deaths
When the latter dawns
…pain, regrets, anxieties, frustrations
…take over our beloved
So live not in the loss of bitterness
…envy
…wickedness
…and hatred
Six feet should be enough to check your excesses
For nothing we have is actually ours

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. :)
