DANGER IN THE VOLTA

Elsewhere
The sea is traveling home
Preceeded by its warning motors of water
Taking over roads and many a gutter

II
Elsewhere
Homes sit in the warnings of the water
Humans having heard and seen but waiting for the sea’s slaughter
As home is that only place they sit

III
Elsewhere
The powerful know the calamities which will follow the sea’s warning
But their kins live in no danger
And that raging water is to them a stranger
And so they watch amused
As the affected live in fear and are confused

IV
Elsewhere
None knows of a sea traveling to land in the Volta
None knows of their messenger which is an invading water
Let alone think of the damaging structures
The wounding fractures and fatal structures

V
Yet elsewhere
Some know the danger
Have read of the danger
Are praying against the danger
But have no other means of helping solve that danger

VI
And so their pens cry
As their mouths sob
Their books are stained
As they pray against rains
Their hearts hurt
As their minds bleed

VII
Still elsewhere, big parties are taking over
Forcing many to celebrate instead of caution
For a success is worth more than a looming danger
Everywhere

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. :)
