WHILE YOU WAIL

While you wail your worse …through the wins of yesteryears And moan the gemütlich atmosphere …that disaster distroyed Know, those in the painless world …are kvelling And do swell with love …knowing you’ll do well II The moments you shared will die not in you They’ll just feel special …and be mind videos …for only […]

CHANGE IN NEED

I am shedding my clothes of sadness Here I am Standing stark naked Awaiting your layers of seconds to fix scars of yesteryears Your minutes to fix heartbreaks of your predecessors Your hours to act as underwears of success Your days to fix all premature greys Your months to put on me clothes of dignity […]

HIDDEN MEANINGS UNDER CHURCH SKIRTS

There are so many meanings hidden Hidden in songs ridden Ridden on vocal cords from the bottom of burning intestines Intestines locked away by flesh of stomachs II Rising like sunrise and stabling like burns A heart fluttered to die and resurrected to live like a ghost Scar of pain gathering guts to form sounds […]

​A NEW OPENING

As hands of dawn open the rest cage Do consider this queer adage That hands won’t feed if there be no work And like the wisest version of Ananse Build us into a harvesting web II We are hens In worldly dens We are cocks Between some rocks We are comfortable tourists Who are blessed […]

ANGELS AT POST

Dear rains Weed the clouds And form a clear path in my sky I need its lovely blue To stay strong III Dear lightenings Shut the loud mouths Of your thunders To stop their roarings like hungry tigers My ears plead for peace III Dear Moon Appear like a knight And clear the dark To […]

A DEATH AND A BIRTH

A death and a birth Sorrowful happiness hang like a cross and a hope The dead year not being given a death bed In the jurisdiction of the new born Its death chained by unfulfilled dreams And banished into the evil forest archives of failure Never to return ever II Harsh words are not said […]

THE SUN DAWNS

After setting for so long The sun’s head is casting its shadows Showing its grand arrival Hoping hope sits in hearts for anticipation Instead of towel throwing II After setting for so long Its coming is palpable But its heat drains sweat needed for hydration The sun is a king wicked in absence Gracious in […]

POETRY OF MOTIVATION

Who wants to be a snail? Who wants to be a tortoise? The former and latter are one In two things Both have God built houses Both are slow The former is easily broken The latter built in unbrokeness The creator is not unfair He gives you pace And leaves you fragile He slows your […]

New Martyrs Rise

  When hearts meet fears and flee And groans turn to songs as dirges Where brides must sing of joy – When indigo streaks our faces –   *** When stolen voices become Serial callers with borrowed Phrases, Where old plasters cover the wounds Where real heroes fall Then new martyrs rise to build Our […]

TRIALS OF WOMENGARO?

A CRITIC’S FLAW (HAIKU)

A feeling like hope Sits in the midst of chaos Oh pessimism! II A feeling like love Sits in the midst of hatred Oh ye blind hurt men! III A feeling like wins Sit in the midst of grave loss Oh ye doomed thinkers! IV Hear the sad critic Use the word ‘like’ in her […]

MOMENTS OF CONFUSION (NOVE OTTO)

When the sun suddenly quivers And the sky frightens with shivers When thunder sounds an intrusion All sky beings in hopelessness shake Calling for vain help as they break Bowing to fear in confusion We, like brooms, must come together Nudging faith a pleading further We might laugh loud after we wake Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia […]

A WALK WITH HOPE

A LITTLE BIT OF HOPE

When I lie awake in tears And my heart speaks in only fears Like a soldier without weapons at the war front, I bow my head in my head and think of bolting from the human front   When stories are told of the meek And eyes look down on the weak Like a grass […]

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 […]
