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 […]

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 […]

THE CROSS OF LOSS

Shame is the first act which chases As the heart, in pain races Soldier words in mouths take bases Dead flowers of horrid laughter in ridicule vases Such is the cross of loss Turning a crown into a horse With a foe as its boss III A crowd gives worship of pain Darkness tries to […]

AMOASTAS (JUST ME)

I Beaming billows Writhing willows Crying crevices Shedding services II Sinful streams Selling screams Freeing foes Littering lows III I walk And I talk I shock And I rock IV I swing And I sing Hate me I’m still me Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2014

YOU STONY MOUNTAIN!

Stony, stony, stony mountain No water, no food, no assuring fountain Heart on fire No heart’s desire I’ve lost my bid on the painful counting   Stony, stony, stony mountain Fearfully, heartlessly and horribly daunting All you’ve made me is a crier As the sun do me frier And some hungry lions keep on haunting […]

GIVE THANKS; CRAZY STANZAS

They bow, any time she speaks At a glance, many squeak and steal peeks   They stand even when he wears a band At a glance, everyone extends a hand   Then my eyes look at me, then at you And your eyes look at you then at me Fishes caught in the same boat? […]

MY SKY

NO COPYCATTING
