When your life is hard
And your hard work’s luck seems bad
…you’re a soul to glow

When your mates live easy
And your best’s world seems messy
…you’re the one to glow

When you trip where others fly
And you fall where others stand tall
…your stage will call

In a happy sad world
And a painful sweet world
In a win lose world
And a broken love world
The worst rises after many a fall
So know
…your fate will call at a time your falls scream low
So rise and dust and stand till you thrive from every fall
Which makes you kowtow

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. :)

I love this.

The paradoxes clothing the lines in the first three stanzas are the sparkles of gloom that embrace beings in their being truthful and trustworthy, the bitterness of the sweetness of life.

The oxymorons flooding the last stanza are peacefully disturbing, depicting the smoothly rough and tough journey of life.
