WHY DIFFERENCE BECAME A FEAR

Once a god created a mouseIts squeaks made men meekBut time showed its destructivenessAnd same men began to freak out IIThen the god created a catIts mews wowed mankindIt also went after the mouseForgetting same god created themGetting applause and pats from humansTill fascination turned into indifferenceAnd mankind called for another kind IIIThe same god […]

A SHAME

We both felt the flames of attraction And watched as our hearts held hands …walked happily out and about …kissed and drank fresh nsafufuo …joked and laughed And came back into their shameful enclaves Watching us languish in yearning …without doing a thing II You were not willing to take a step And certainly, I […]

FEAR

If there is a fire that lights the path of mistakes Surely, fear is its lighter If there is a wire that electrocutes dreams in pregnancy Surely fear constitutes its positives and or negatives If there is a chair in hell Pushed thither in swiftness Fear surely has a hand therein For farfetched fumblings felt […]

AT THIS CROSSROADS

At this crossroads Where good leads to bad And bad leads to good Stands the whip of fear At all ends II At this crossroads Righteousness begets pain While cruelty begets peace Yet conscience acts judge With a gavel of suffering III The lioness in me battles the sheep I am The tears in me […]

WHEELS OF CHANGE

At the mercy of the sentient being Whose breath was like mono gas With an elephantine emotion Which jumped like a servant at his command I croaked like a choked frog In his hidden gutters Gutters which obeyed their master In soundproofing, aiding and abetting the crime of pain II Daylight now flood the candle […]

OBSERVING PLEA

When a lioness puffs loudly in chase Its game triumph For they know Their fleeing tactics drain their murderers So even when caught They face death with a smile II When the goat bleats loudly in running All know there is danger That is, if nanny is not in sight Chances are, its deeds do […]

A TRAP OF THE MIND

It is tearing down their roof Some are complacent, sitting aloof Some are hopping looking for a hoof Some are looking to clear their goof All they wanted was a proof And now they have their precious fired proof But they don’t know if it’s a cause on land A cause in the air A […]

PLEASE DO NOT GO TO SLEEP

Please do not go to sleep Open your eyes and do me keep When trouble alarms start to beep And danger waters whisper thirst for their mouths so deep As forces of negativity aim straight with their jeep In my thoughts which aim to command a leap Open the doors of positivity and help me […]

SAVE ME

A hand of the mind in the hands of the holy A hand of the mind in the hand of the devil All eyes see is a tranqil and cute creation A catalyst of oppression helping the latter A loser of conscience backing the former I am a chaos in storm A weak pillar in […]

FRIGHTS

When right frights take flight Bright heights fly like kites Great mights see nights and know plights As their unrights fly in sight seeking to be upright Causing stomachs some tights Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2015 (Picture credit: Google images)

GROWING OLDER!

I They call me the happiest man. They say I’m the definition of happiness. But they don’t know my sadness If they knew. A man who has no worries they assume Saying worriers and I are parallel lines But they don’t know my worries If they knew The man who kills both a lion and […]

DOOM SCARINGS

I shiver And I don’t know why I who battled dark quarries And emerged bathed with light II I shiver And I don’t know why I who battled with poverty And won with no debt mark II I tremble And I don’t know why I who was forced into the anus of the great sick […]

THE FREEDOM SONG WHERE I BELONG

There is a place where I belong It seems I’ve always there belonged Even while I’m resting under this earthly tree Its eastern corridors reek freedom song Freedom from self, the lyrics of the song From the stitched, to the fried heart From the sick, to heads needed to be heard From the thorned, to […]

OBVIOUS TAUNTER

Obvious waves Travelling from far caves You give chills which lift no finger to save II Visions of  your opened mouth Visions of your furious face Thoughts of your final blows Shake my body into jerks III So sail slow, oh vicious waves! Smile small, oh angry waves Seal your mouth, oh taunting waves And […]

ON HEELS OF FEAR

A PEN WITH A BRAVE INK

When brains fear strength Chaos stands tall The body of the pen Must fear no muscles Because its voice is the loudest Let the pen talk And the muscles bow Power like that Needs no coward for an ink I am a pen A pen without muscles But I will never stand To be crashed […]

FEAR OF TRUST

Sea shells talk to the shores like pretty dolls talk to their girls   They ask for cover They ask for completeness They ask for freedom but they get captured   If I’ll end up that way Under your cover Please leave me under this dangerous shade   The winds may rape me As the […]

EBOLA FEVER

Ebola, Gloves on my hands for ebola A mask on my face for ebola Skin curving in for ebola But I still shiver   Lord don’t hover Rain with your meds to sack ebola Thrash it to extinction; ebola Help your beloved from this ebola We are helpless   Helpless, hopeless, Prevention failing We call, […]

FEAR AND PANIC

In fear’s arms panic cuddles Feeling safe and on top of threats The lovers push their victim to the wall Crushing it with their hands and teeth   Ofori never knew their trick The fear of ebola drove him mad He took to his heels and run frantically Into the opened arms of fever   […]

IN THE LAND OF THE GHOST

The sad cannot cry The weepy cannot weep The sleeper cannot sleep The talker cannot talk The tickled cannot laugh In the land of the feisty ghost   They’ve all heard of it How humans were slaughtered without sharp objects, How lions were silenced and made stuck How children saw many heads on one head […]

WHO ARE WE KIDDING?

It is when death knocked That I saw that life has not me forked Crying for an end, I reckoned was just lip service If not, I would have entered that bottled and have it cocked But no, I RUN With legs and strength I knew not existed in my bones Who is kidding who? […]

CHASING-FEARS

In these four corners I surreptitiously crawl Shutting mute entries with a threatening brawl While the banners of thoughts are rooted in my head’s corners   In this dark self-confine I ruminate, no, I contemplate On whether to zap out this life and put it on a plate For those with stochastic opinions that will […]

HERE I STAND

I am standing in the mud Stretching in a huge world like a little bud As the rains of uncertainty stone me cold Yet this heart will not fold I, like the rest of the women fold fantasizes About the knight who sweeps women off their feet But this same heart has nightmarish daydreaming of […]

HAUNTED

I am running through a wilderness I am running through a wilderness of thorns barefooted There is this sorrowful drumming being played by a prowess Confusing me and saying in my ears ‘you are hated!’ I do not know why I have the urge to run under a sky that is moonless? Now taunters are […]

THERE IS GOODNESS IN EVERY SITUATION NO MATTER HOW BAD

Sometimes, many bad things happen to us and we ask God why. If we happen to sit down and analyse the problem without sympathizing with ourselves, we will see the blessing no matter how faint it may seem. Fear is something no one wishes to encounter, but ask me what I think about it and […]
