Frozen

Heart blended- yeah!

I love the snow flakes

Make me a Popsicle

Perhaps melt me in one

No wait!

Freeze me in one

I love how senseless it feels

More like how void it flows

That’s what I call life

No particular destination

But a definite definition

I’m living it!

 

To the One I Love

Walking through the rain

Rising from the snare

Can’t stand the pain

But you came as a spare

Dragging me out of the crowd

You took away the terrors of the night

A shield of comfort

An armor of hope

A reflection of faith

Threw down that rope

Over and over

Proofing that I could be more

Definitely more I am

 

The Trip Experience

It was my first time on the plane and I loved every bit of it.

I started from Accra, Ghana way up to Fairbanks, USA. Four flights in all- Accra to Washington DC, Washington DC to Detroit, Detroit to Seattle and Seattle to Fairbanks. I left Ghana on Wednesday at 11:45pm and arrived in Alaska on Friday at 12:05am. Yeah! It was a long trip and I’m still surprised I  made it home finally.

I’d love to talk about every detail of the trip but trust me, we don’t have all the time for that so just my focus- two or three lines about the clouds.

In the Air

I’ve always been so captivated by nature and what I saw is amazingly indescribable. I don’t know how many people pay attention to the clouds but I did and it was amazing.

In one phrase, it looked like a transparent glass overlaid with mountains and valleys of icing.

That was the most amazing thing I’d ever seen and honestly, I will let you in on anything else as amazing as that immediately I find one.

Bad Deal

This may not be the best travel post but this is my heart poured out and I enjoyed it.

Thanks for reading!!!

Letter to Myself

Dear Self,

I  know I haven’t been true to you

I know I haven’t been the kind of person you need me to be

In fact, if there is something I’m trying to be it is you

But the wave of emotions

And the rage of time eaters

And the undeniable circumstances you are fully aware of

Will not give me that opportunity

You know that my efforts are matchless

Just to make you proud is my aim

Well, at least I hope I haven’t let you down too much

My brains are restless

My nights are thoughtless

Just because I know that there are millions of people

Who may not make it if I fail to be you

There’s just one request

Don’t make me focus too much on you

That it may end up being all about you

Instead of involving those out there

I love you

But I love others too

So while allowing me to be you

Remind me that I need to be there for others

Love, Your Self

Black Don’t Crack

Black Don’t Crack

Enslaved by the very people who try to Steal my Culture
Sold to me False Hope and made my Fellow Men Hate each other cos they Feared my Nature.

 Well I stand Proud today and I say to Them,

Yes am Black

So black is my DNA

Black is my roots

Black is my Mother and Father

Black is the Melanin that makes me Supernatural

Black is the universe that am connected to

Black is the soul am connected to

Black is the state God was in, until he said let there be light

Black is the colour I seen in my Mother’s womb

Black is the supreme colour,  all colours come from black

Black is the sky that reflects the stars at night

I am Black and I am proud, 

Black don’t Crack

Grab me rope

via Daily Prompt: Trance

One of the scariest things I’ve ever experienced is sitting behind my laptop and having no idea what alphabet to type let alone words. It’s like hanging over a cliff and screaming “hand me a rope, anybody, just grab me a rope”. Reason? Such makes me question if I really am the writer I thought I was. Man, it takes hours of a trance to get a grip on that!

You have no idea

For missing my daily posts for more three days now, no body has any idea how my heart is itching for countless words to just complete it. I really should catch up. This probably doesn’t count as a real post but with the desire to maintain the pace oozing out of system, trust me, this is top notch.
