Ennin Kwaku Godfred




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.

I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and sociology at the University of Cape Coast.
