COMMON GROUNDS

As Pakistanis break the code of Kenya’s friendship
And France act roarers fearing a Russian takeover in Mali
As Ethiopia sacks UN representatives for meddling
And Ghana battles sensational and degrading news
Uganda’s coffee people cry for a pull out
…from world trade
What is happening to our world?

II
Merciless rains
Hot headed sun
Wicked winds
Vile volcanoes
No one is spared of nature’s anger
Yet unthinking heads see Black from White
Knowing all are bodies disasters don’t see
Shallow minds classify the poor to force their knees to bow to the rich
Knowing floods can drown them all
Horrible people feed off arms and drugs to destroy the struggling
Knowing a volcano can burn them all
Hidden enclaves are nil on this restructuring earth
If all hands shun the deck at this time when we’re just vulnerable bodies on display
Nature’s power lies in its servitude
…and its indispensability
We need humility and harmony to jump its traps

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. :)
