A Hero in Disguise

 

 

I was so glued to her like a stitch

 

In her world, mine was the top-notch

 

She could defy gravity to show love up in the skies

 

Her grimace depicted the uncertain hope for the unknown futurity

 

Devoid of family ties, she promised to be a wife

 

Just like her mother, her beauty was exceptionally nice

 

Lo, these were imaginaries of the smiling daylight as I took a stroll

 

Like in the movies, there she sat under the iroko-weeping

 

Eyes reddened-tears with no signs of abating

 

From afar I looked and was panting

 

Who could have left this rose in such an unkempt state?

 

I wondered, pounded and even got bothered!

This Rose deserves better, Lest it will wither!

 

I was burning with emotional sensation

I saw her like a fugitive without a nation

 

She had a sight without a vision

 

Her fate was so rare to expect

 

Heart felt pains is what she has been through, I suspect

 

My presence was irresistibly felt

 

No need to hurt

 

She now got a new definition of love, compassion and that I respect

 

Showing her love and companionship restored her smiles

 

Tears vanished like it never was

 

From thence, I was a hero in her ever joyous heart.

Ennin kwaku Godfred, as I’m affectionately called, is an up and coming sensational and creative writer who hails from Kwahu Mpreaso in the Eastern region of Ghana. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and sociology at the University of Cape Coast. My passion is to write about the relevant social, educational, political and economical issues, among many others, circular issues and is mostly triggered by personal experiences birthed by my desire to write. Such a characteristic of me is evident in the originality, innovativeness and influence of my articles. I am driven by my popular saying ‘UNTIL THE OCEAN FREEZES TO BREEZE, I WILL ALWAYS BE AT THE SHORE TO WRITE.’
