THE SHAPE OF ME

I will never give up a drop of tear
…an ounce of pain
…a few of my mistakes
…an ugly scar
…a little of shame
From my past to live a perfect present
As they all form the shape of me

II
It is my fall which helps me appreciate
…the happiness and dignity of my rise
It is my shame which helps me empathize
…with the struggling and the ashamed
It is my scars which help me remember
…the flaws I must stay away from
It is my pain which helps me appreciate
…the health of my mind
Even my intimidation helps me
…appreciate the freedom of self
So I will give up nothing
I won’t give up anything
I won’t relinquish a thing
…in hope of being better

III
All that makes up my past
Form the bedrock of my present
All that built my present
Act rocks, water, sand with their living things
…to give me a ground to walk on today
So I will appreciate each moment
Be thankful for each breath
Celebrate my strides on this journey called life
Nothing beats living than knowing the importance of your time
…herein

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. :)
