JUST TODAY

I was the rude woman who readied red eyes for a naughty man
Just Today
I was the busy business woman who held a pen and held a bend
Just today
I was the religious mother, calling on goodness to bless her kid
Just today
I was the most patient of teachers listening to questions without a flinch
Just today
I was the broke middle age woman trekking to town and acting a clown
Just today
I was the loving wife to a man who knows not the definition of a bride price
Just today
I was the lazy bones sleeping around boring movies
Just today
I am the topic for many many mouths in many houses
Just today
Just today
I was the best friend who held a shield
But I am no one to me
…and will forever be at peace with it

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. :)
