WHERE IS YOUR SMILE?

This is a world where strong sentiments
…need stronger spirits
This is a world where stronger hurdles –
…need the strongest souls
This is a world –
…where conflicting battles are fought with emotional swords
This is a world –
…a world where a little inattentiveness spells doom
So dig it-
…your sword of smiles from the pits of your hells

II
Where is your smile?
Dig it –
…from the well of your hurts
Where is your smile?
Mine it –
…from the depth of your sadness
Where is your smile?
Lift it –
…from the lowest floor of your pain
Where is your smile?
Drive it –
…through the vastest road of your shame
Where is your smile?
Blast it –
…from the hardest stone of your ridicule
Where is your smile?
Fetch it –
…from the hollow tunnel of your need
Where is your smile?
Carve it –
…from the coolest wood of your loneliness
Where is your smile?
Smoke it –
…from the deepest den of your hunt

III
Where is your smile?
Please don’t send it on pleasure errands of the unworthy
Where is your smile?
Get it
Just get it
As your most trusted armour-
…on this living battlefield
To help you fight fair
To help you block taunts
And fence you from vipers
Until real help knocks

A HEROINE’S WELCOME

Mark it
You, you and you
Who have used my most precious thing
As tool to shoot my pride
Your hands will clap at the rebellion of your heart
Soon, very soon
When the world asks that you stand
To give me a heroine’s welcome

II
Mark it
You, you and you
Whose teeth jubilate at my fall
Your smile will painfully be fucked in mouth tearing
When I stand there
There
Where the spotlight felicitatiously shines
Making your smile imperative
I can’t wait to see that smile that digs bile in your mouth
As you give me a heroine’s welcome

III
Tell them
Tell he, she and they
Whose tongues happily wag at the storms
Which robot my dance of shame that
Soon
Very soon
Those tongues would be forced to carry my best parts
And hawk to convince the already convinced world in a buying
Just to feel belonged
In my heroine’s welcome

IV
Tell them
Tell he, she and they
That my sun has risen under these clouds
Oh tell them
Tell those legs helping hands to wake the sleeping
To see the pain I wear
That a moon hurries to this darkness
A sun waits to replace it when it works and tires
And when it finally appears
All yous giggling in twos
Will rise in a painful ovation
Yes, a very painful ovation
To give me a heroine’s welcome

ANEW

We have crossed a bridge of a year onto another
Another which needs no bags loaded with problems
Dragged into its realm
Another whose slate can accommodate no old news
Let alone entertain old sentimental views
Shed it, we’re birthing ourselves anew

II
Our past can only be the fertilizer of our present
The more rotten, the better working
We are shedding the productiveness of our hard work
On skies of daydreams
Shedding the poison of self entitlement into gratitude and open mindedness
We will see no successes on trees of night dreams
Via forced wishes garnished with bitterness
There will be no monies hanging on phantom trees
We will plant seeds of money no matter how little,
Water them through self motivated hard work
Nurture them through dedication
Protect them by clearing weeds of greed
Until they grow to feed us
We are birthing our zeals anew

III
We are never reheating problems of our yesterday
In our vision pots of today
When we can get no nutritional solutions by feeding our minds with it
We are wearing clothes of positivity
Lenses of objectivity
We are wearing boots of determination
Holding bags ready to host laurels oh so attainable
Unnecessary feathers weighing us down
Will be carefully plucked to help us better fly
If we were chickens, we’re now eagles
If we were dogs, we’re now lions
If we were donkeys, we’re now wild elephants
We won’t sink low and kowtow no blows
We won’t nurse fears and rain no tears
We won’t hold each other in a pull-him-downs
We are helping each grow, hand in hand
This is the resolution
The resolution vehicling our actions to our successes

POSITIVE VIBES

A flower of smiles

In a hand so warm

A massaging sun waving from miles

In a sky of no harm

Greets your morning from the land of my mind

II

The land of my mind

In which I farm happiness in weeds of strife

Throwing stumps and thorns into dungeons of past’s behind

Carving a great team to play the team of life

So create a smile without a sigh


IV

A smile with no sigh

Even if clouds blanket the waving sun

Knowing transiency is its bothersome hi

And impotency carves its tempt like fun

In a garden of your sweet scented presence

Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia © Feb. 8, 2018

THE STRENGTH OF LEGS

Legs stand frail
Smaller than thighs
Which they carry like a huge mountain on two small trees
Yet move calculating not
That head to waist add to their load
That is the power of living with your all

II
So why will a soul in flight
Complain of the burning of the wind?
Why should a burdened soul
Seek to flee leaving its body and mind?
Why will a tired hand rebel
When it hangs and swings
And explores to fold?
No matter how huge our crosses
The world creates chances of its nothingness
Because there is always someone
Whose cross dwarfs ours
Yet knows the taste of the gratefulness of living

DEPRESSION

breeloverly.com

Hearts are like magnets

Their station, determinant of attractions

A sad station definitely pulls many to hover

Depression being the lead

II

Just as rivers find the sea

Just as rains find earth

Just as hyponyms know their hypernyms

So does depression force a stay

III

We are masters in our ships

We choose those to let in and out

We are warriors are war

We choose who to conquer

IV

Cut the bond and be free

None can help but you

Win over your hurts and let all see

That all you needed was you not two

V

Winners win, self-love being key

Losers die before their time

Even with locomotion

Their hidden selves reek of corpses

I WISH YOU SEE

If only I were your mirror
Showing you your reflection
You will see the beauty right here
And extinguish your fears
As skilled firemen kill their dangers

II
I wish you see
The bold you
Who like Sampson
Battle the lions of every breath
The fearless soul
Who like David
Conquer all Goliaths
With just a catapult and stones
The adorable spirit
Who like Nelson Mandela
Submit to cuffs emasculating
Just to score a moral point
And climb to the Everest of positions
To write his name on the vast sky
Never to be forgotten
I wish you see
I wish you see

III
I wish you see
The beautiful bloom in full daylight
Surrounded by shadows hailing and covetous
Loved by hearts seen and unseen
Watched by legs crawling, walking and running
I wish you see
I wish you see

IV
I wish you see
The praying mantises praying with their last breaths
For half of what you are
I wish you see
I hope you see

V
You are looking into muddy waters
With a revered reflection
Look here
Look into me
To see you
The you that is
The you who is
The you who have always been
Perfect

NOT ALONE

When tough times are mandated to reign

As horrors get the stage to feign

And saviours hung in unreachable skies

As doubt tells unimaginable lies

Pause

Look like an owl because

Life is a knife

Whenever unpleasantness rife

So strive to thrive

Live in spirits well alive

Like the cry-laughing child

Who knows no wild

Your parents sit on mythical thrones

And are blocking all your murderous stones

With eyes like the hawk

Around the clock

No matter the statures and their form-like gawk

LAYERS

When poor brick layers
Lay their bricks
Many turn spitters
Many; urinators
Extremists turn breakers
Only determined layers
Those who foresee their buildings finish
Work on through the hurdles
Ignoring the shouting metaphors
Like unfeeling bulldozers
Discerning minds get the puzzle
Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2015

DON’T DROP

Winning

Done drowning due to defeat?

Dirt dressing in down deceit?

Deafened drowsiness

Damaged daft dagger

Debts on dancing demons

Daredevils dressing in daisies

Dote on danger and distress

Don’t drown to dust your dreams

Dump dormancy, dare and dream

A CAN DO COLOGNE

As night hurries in packing darkness

To bolt seeing as day tosses to turn in minutes

What thoughts are wearing heels

Disturbing your head chambers?

II

As day prepares to take off its blanket

And sun’s door is being opened by the moon

What  fears are taking over the strength of your legs

Forcing you to still give weight to your poor bed?

III

None is without weight of thoughts

None is without noisy heels in head

None is like a happy stream undisturbed

So grab your strength coat and catch your day boat

Putting on a cologne of can do spirit

BE A TACTICIAN

When fate goes to sleep

Fear wakes and tends to seep

Showing his muscles

And giving all hassles

Then failure gets dazzled

II

When fear walks on eye

And will acts too shy

Uselessness takes a grand seat

As ambition falls at his feet

Giving mouths words of a defeat

III

Dress fear in hope

And failure will climb a mountain

While will takes a stand

By giving a hand

And sacking uselessness

Do this, we all deserve a stand

If a squirrel

Stays in its hole

Fearing trouble,

Fire finds it

And it is smoked out

Into a hot saucepan

If a bird

Stays on one tree

Like a person tied to a bed

Fearing a bullet

A gun finds it

And it ends up a kebab

Let legs take you places

Let hands determine your paces

Let eyes search new faces

Let ears stand as effective soldiers

As your receivers receive for action

BOUNCE

When you throw a ball

On any floor

It bounces

It bounces

II

When you pick it up and throw again

It bounces here

It bounces there

Bouncing and bouncing and bouncing

III

We are like balls

Of grumpy life

So prepare to bounce

When a throw calls for it

Free your mind to bounce whenever

And wherever you are thrown to bounce

As long as your air stays intact

And your cover has no puncture

Such is the nature of our existence

I am bouncing

PERFECT PALACES

HARDWORK

Pensive plans pets pious people

Pushing poor powers to prey in their pates

Pissing pride to puff and play

A pent up pecker picks in power play

II

Pure persons pave power paths

And pray to pistol preys at play

Pouring petrification in pensive plans

To pacify pains and pin position of pacemaker

III

Puffy pals poke pins in palms

So paddle per points painting

And pasting prunes in pallid to pout

Packaging will pick your perfect palace

The strong winds will calm

And the heated sun will calm

As the rains seize

Only to drizzle at dawn

The tsunamis will turn good breezes

To embrace and caress me

In mayonta

In mayonta

I will stand like the moon I am

In the dark followed by the stars above

And nothing will stop my shine

The clouds can pass through

But nothing will make it seal my shine

In mayonta

III

So winds, blow me south, north, east and west

You ruthless sun, heat me so hard, I’ll be your conquest

Drench my soul in wetness you angry rain!

And tsunami, make me an alien in mermaid-land

You will be subdued to serve

Yes, subdued to serve only me

In mayonta

I am looking up

So I know

The clouds hang on your sky

And rains tears on your head

I see from far

I don’t see how your heart churns

But trust me, your sun is fast approaching

So don’t give up

II

During these times,

I know failure stands tall

Mocking you to give up

It is not to be blamed

It is just doing its job

Who wants to fail?

Even failure hates to fail

So struggle

Struggle through it all

III

It is as it should be

When you fall

Through the storm and

Your ears are shut,

Your eyes are blurred,

Your mouth tightly closed,

Your nose suffers to keep you safe.

Your head must help

And your will must fight

IV

Stories are told of the larvae

Who struggled through its cocoon

Hoping to be a butterfly

A child thought it was hurting

And helped it out

It died shortly because it didn’t go through

The stages it needed to to be a butterfly

We are all in our cocoons

How we get out to fly

Must be through our struggles

My sky is not exactly clear

And as someone from afar sees mine

So do I see yours

And so I know your sun is fast approaching

Of awe in succulence

Huge hurdles hurt in heat

Humming victory on empty street

Housing fear to blow defeat

Help hears faint as hatred hiss

II

Hear who hysteria harmfully hit

Hopeless haters who high works fit

Hurling hots as word weapons, they sit

Hindering the power of will

III

Help  hates the haunted wretch

Who doesn’t work and always search

Hating hard work and loving free fetch

Like the pretentious mad man in duress

IV

Help hovers around the haunted

Hard worker who tries to make fear daunted

So scream aloud and be a sluggy haunted

And risk being seen as the haughty nought

TONGUE TWISTER

Through the taste of tasteless teas

Trippings on thrifty trusted trees

To the terrible painful taunting tears

Tacit teachings have grown my thoughts 

Throwing tantrums terrify thoughtful thoughts

Teary eyes tend to blind

Tests show the trusted

In a mirrored gaze.

Generate a light

And throw it right

BLOW AND BOUNCE

Blow and bounce

Bubble and breathe

Balls with no bounce

Are left untouched

A bounce in here

A bounce out there

An infectious chase

So blow hard

Bubble and bounce

Travel far

Get the chase

The road may not be safe

But if you bounce for a while

A burst will give a smiling rest

WHEN THE BIRD STANDS STRESSED

STRESSED BIRD

Once I visited my lonely farm

Stood and watched animals do all harm

I made to arrest with a few good charm

Up, right, left they swarm

II

I stood there feeling completely lost

I looked above to access the cost

And saw a bird with a thought so lost

Perching on a tree as a host

III

I threw a stone but it stood to boast

Angering me, but I saw it as a lost ghost

Hovering lost fearing no host

Suddenly I thought of a tasty toast

IV

A tasty toast which cannot boast

Feeding good scents to noses of host

I took my sling to shoot at most

But I lost its body to an intruding poach, it was lost

V

Well I thought of this;

Stress has no bliss

It can only hiss

And give a nasty feet to kiss

If lucky, you can’t escape without a diss

I’m flying no matter what

SWEET DREAMS

There is a charm

Against sleepy harm

So lie a while

And wear a smile

Think of you

In a city of two

Chatting nature

And smiling to future

The soft winds embrace

The birds run a race

To help them trace

Your happiness at your pace

Your companion is you

Yes, everything you yearn for two

And that special being

Wants you to be the only customer in an inn

A walk to the streams

A dance under a smiling moon and glowing stars

And if you need clones,

Their giggles are problem bars

Their love seeps through your bones

These are the only happenings in your dreams

So angel, rest the body, and let the soul live right

Places in dark rooms

In our minds, they hide

If all you do is wake

Because day opens its precious gate

Then know you are awake

You don’t need a smack for goodness sake!

Run around, get something doing and stop being fake

So you don’t fall into a pauper’s bait

Boiling moments with their blessings

True love is within, who can mess with my inside?

Fallers heed to calls, but my calls will come from within

Let everyone shake to fit

Rather than just sitting

Like zombies carrying loads of problems.

ALRIGHT

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When your heart is deep in doubt

As your blessings start to sprout

Harbour no shattering murderous fear

Shed no humiliating blinding tear

Push through even if you look queer

And all faces tend to annoyingly sneer

For darkness gets bored without light

Especially when it stays long from its sight

Darkness needs light to struggle in fight

To make its dooming world real bright

So don’t ever give up the grand fight

Fighting to win is your bonafide right

Keep on keeping on and hold on tight

It will all calm and be alright

WHIRL IN THE WHIRLWIND

whirlwind

I

Dust, winds, form whirlwinds

Which whirls and blocks your cool path

And laughs at your trials

II

You lose your balance

Like a paper in their midst

They smile in content

III

Close your eyes and wind

Dance to their own tune and see

Their muscles will tear

IV

Dust and winds will fight

Leaving your path as it was

Leaving you winner

EMPTY THE BAGGAGE

i_felt_a_funeral_in_my_brain_by_papayatheshark-d3cbkh5

I

A mouth saw your face

Attracted your eyes

And placed a litter in your thought’s drum

II

An eye met your eyes

Held it

And sent disdain into your thought’s drum

III

A voice sought your ears

Found it

And threw filth into your thought’s drum

IV

Some hand worked with a face

Came straight and fought your cheeks

And sent pain into your thought’s drum

V

Love left your world, now it is filled

And overflowing

And you let it flow for long

VI

Please empty the drum

Litters of hurt and pain

Needs no place in your thought’s drum

VI

They are filth

Which must be emptied at every dropping

For positivity to have a place to rule

YACHT YONDER

YACTCH

I

Real remedies resonate after right race

Leaning lame like a lean lizard

Will win wretchedness and wage your own war

Hear heat’s humming and hit in habit

Eons can erode into eons but it’ll earn

II

Fear of failure frightens frivolously

Get up, go, grow, give to this game

Jeers, jabbers, jacks for you are jackasses’ jackets

Turn tiring troubles tactfully to taste

You’re your  yachtsman, yacht yonder to your yield.

BE NO TOAST FOR SADNESS

images (1)

Sorrow sits in smiling

When it wins your world

Put patience in running

And give faith a call

II

Your faith will call on endurance

Who’ll come to be your shield

Yours will be to obey its voice

And you’ll win your happy field

III

Mess it up 

And you’ll be the meat

That will be roasted

As sadness’ toast
