I have suffered
I have suffered from exploits and horrid hunting
Human hunters have haunted and hunted my humans
To a point where it was daunting
Funny how their ends have turned my beings to love their earns
Running into their slave ships with their own legs

I have suffered
I have suffered from heads heading as tails
Parading many fails
And splashing many ails
Opening doors to brutes from dubious sails
To come scatter with their destructive gales

I have suffered
I have suffered from the deeds of my womb beings
Who dig and muddy the waters I serve them
In hope of wealth which harms their very selves
Making me look like a bad site and a leper on the world market

I have suffered
Even my currency is like some pauper country’s toilet paper
Running down the gutters of the dollar
Making me one of the laughing stalks
…of the world

I have suffered
From deeds of my own
Now I’m standing like an anthill
With many holes acting dangerous routes to intruders
Who will be the David to this huge Goliathic problems
…to save me from this mess?
Darkness hides my shame only for daylight
…to showcase it naked on world stages
I have suffered
Really suffered from those I’ve birthed
Who always run me down
…generation to generation
…to their deaths

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. :)
