Scattered Thoughts

*inspired by Animal Pharm*

scared but not deterred
he looks into his heart and sees the fear is still
but he’s indifferent to the cheers
mammoth sized challenges would have to seek redress
he’s stronger than ’em all like there is an S on his chest
he has faith in his ability
never under-estimate the African ingenuity
like an independence speech he inspires hope in a community
his tongue lashes out purity
nobler than neon
looks in to his life and sees success and beyond
the connection with his maker is like a paper bond
but regardless its still strong
forgotten like the pledge in an un-patriotic’s mind
but he doesn’t wish to fit in he’s out grown his size
his insecurity is on demise
whilst his confidence will rise
silent as the fart whilst sitting among the Kings
he keeps his thoughts locked like a treasured ring
malignant when they emerge even the Reverend sings
from the darkest and the saddest emerge some pleasant thing
inspired to write
black lips fear to speak but his thumb puts up a fight
his competition aint up to speed tho’ they got a cutting edge
the higher the climbs the harder it gets
he doesnt expect comfort he prepares for the threats
melting away like candles in the Saharan sun
his doubts, his fears he’s traded every one
with positive adjectives that are synonymous to won
his spirit is fired up his rolling with Trump
his steady flow like the credits roll
is heavy though
he doesn’t write stuff for the world to skim through
no Scottie Pippen he’s taking down the big bull
the skill is not a question it takes passion to make magic
if he’s got you this far its clear that it has happened

Whispers From A Beach (I’m From The City Where…)

I’m from the city where the lights dont stay on enough
political issues are discussed through out the month
children eat”Graphic and times at Brunch”
shades of brown uniforms with pockets patched
I’m from the city where one in every four cars is commercial
hard liquor is advertised in commercials
where there is more gas in the taps than at the station
police like being on the street than in the station
I’m from the city where teenagers are employed on social media
conversations occur in one syllable not cos they’re easier
hampers go to directors rather than the needier
I’m from the city where prices are like weeds
grow up fast in terms of everything from ‘chalewote’ to TV’s
I’m from the city where there are more fake products than people
if you are having Bad luck then your grandmother is evil
but that’s what comes out the mouth of people
I’m from the city where if your name is bisexual
like Elikem, Mawunyo, don’t take that personal
the derrogatory comments that may be a daily ritual
if from the city where waakye is sold in leaves
everywhere is suitable to pee
kayayos aspiring to be queens
and most dreams are killed before they get to be
I’m from the city where there is no love for the city
sachets, polythenes, the whole place is filthy
Millennium city with cave man thinking if from the city where everyday businesses spring up
if you dont lock your door prepare for a stick up
young boys dreaming of being richer
and their relatives bones could make that quicker
I’m from the city where its soccer or Sakawa if you want out of the Ghetto some places ain’t good for walking in stilettos
you wake up early to beat the traffic
the young woman in your office attire could be a distraction
but its her only chance of ever landing a marriage
I’m from the city where I’ll probably be judged for this
speaking the truth is close to sacrilege
I’m from a city which is a city by definition
but no mean city on the average
despite the bad cell coverage
we do love the city cos there is non like it
I’m from the city of ………….
