YOU MAKE IT DIFFICULT

You make it difficult
You make it difficult to write poems of heartbreaks
Even though I’ve walked through the shadows of pain
…and have felt the taunting tortures of disdain
After love lost

II
You make it difficult
You make it difficult to remember the feelings of those times
Those times my hopes stood at the junction of zero
As I cursed those who prophesied my coming hero


III
You make it difficult
You make it difficult to dislike hearts which burned mine
As thankfulness replaces hatred
For their deeds which led me to you

IV
You make it difficult
You make it difficult to even get jealous of those traveling the world
For in your eyes I see the beautiful city of Kigali
In your hair I see the shining structure of Dubai
In your bosom I feel the loving tenderness of Paris
In your embrace I feel the liberty of America
In your presence I feel the courteous aura of Britain
All the while living in the beautiful state of Ghana
With you as my food for good
And my clothes for good mood

V
You make it difficult
You make it difficult to even feel a sore past or perceive a future of doom
For your thoughts erase hurts bought in times past as it does removing doubts
And your smiles promise a happiness always on guard to last

VI
You make it difficult
You make it difficult to remember lonely times
I can’t even remember the bite of cold
Talk less the haunts of vindictive couples
I can’t even flee in jest
For you’ve strapped me to your comfort
Making sure I can fly off to shine but still yearn to be home, in the home that is you

VII
Oh I love my presence and hope it turns my future
A life without pressure
A life filled with many a live treasure
A life which gives me many a pleasure
A life which no wealth can measure

VIII
You make it difficult
You make it difficult to think of life without you
Such untold fires beyond hell fall like rain
At even that thought
You’re everything and some
Driving me home to peace and quiet
In this lifetime

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. :)
