Consider this poetry, written spoken word, or simply my structured thoughts. Whichever it is, enjoy the read!❤💚 I wonder why Yes me, Joel in wonderland. There is a rhetorical question I yearn an answer to. Someone try, God why? Why good people die, everybody dies but the good go first? Why? I sit, write and… Continue reading Why do the good go first?
I feel like killing time, To transform myself into a mime For actions to be louder than words, Again, hoping it sends a message For truly I am a mess at this age; To kill time, I have to kill myself, Free me of my struggles and mind The anxiety, loneliness and depression, If I… Continue reading World Suicide Prevention Day
THE VOICEMAIL How many words can I form from family? Only one word came to mind: fail. Pardon me mom, dad, dear siblings. If I sound harsh forgive me. Though looking at the two syllables of forgive[for and give], to forgive me would be almost impossible. When were you ever for me? When I was… Continue reading World Suicide Prevention Day
I was in a taxi and this guy farts. My inhalation endurance reached its peak in three seconds. The guy's fart could cause mass murder but I was the sole victim that day. The driver could've gone unconscious. Who knows? This guy was putting my life at risk. That's attempted murder. So I got emotional,… Continue reading Too emotional
Death is threatening me. There used to be a time when if death ever kidnapped me and demanded tears for a ransom you'd cry into dehydration hoping to get me back. But now if death takes me away with the same demands, your eyes are a desert made hot with the hatred you feel towards… Continue reading Till I am gone ♥
Resisting food can be hard. I know the struggle, I'm a foodie. Some say resisting junk food is the hardest. I don't know why food qualified with junk is so hard to resist. Maybe there's some cocaine in there and we are all just addicts. Send me to rehab. I dare you! It's better to… Continue reading Justice for organs✊
There are lots of liars out there. From one timers to the chronic masterminds. But what do we get from lying? Well I once got higher quiz marks by lying about my actual score. Don't judge me, it was a moment of weakness. I'm only here to expose you filthy lying maniacs. My roommate's girlfriend… Continue reading You liar!
Why does her wrist spy on my heart, Seeking the secrets of my unsaid words. I can feel the conflict within her breath Dangerously doubting the love I have for her, As she breaths reluctantly to stay alive, Knowing my words could easily kill her soul. I thought our love had metamorphosised, Like this butterfly,… Continue reading Love is wicked 💔[picture poetry]
Wouldn't that be cool? Getting into the twisted minds of people. Well yes, it would be great but like bad as well. I know! I bet my fake friends would be scared the most. Not knowing how to think around me. It would be some amazing comedy for me but I guess they'd be living… Continue reading What if I could read minds

I looked deep into my wall mirror awaiting the reveal of a beautiful image, hoping my mirror had another dimension, to reveal a beautiful image that was me. Each day I only saw one reflection and nothing else, still ugly like my mind whispers aloud. I moved closer to my mirror, fingers crossed, that the… Continue reading Mirror me
Today I was overwhelmed by sadness. I had always known this day would come but as the pace of time eluded my countdown I eventually lost trace of my anticipation.

My lips know all the words of my soliloquy, The good, the bad, and even the ugly. Despite the burden I lay on them, My lips are forced to do and witness As I hold a gentle kiss on your forehead; My version of Judas, while I cruelly betray The raw love your smiles do… Continue reading Break To Repair 💔[picture poetry]
I am the man who murdered humility No defence, take offense, I am guilty. Humility always did want to stay meek and low I knew not how low, I helped him out, six feet below. For without apologies I felt myself so big and high, But humility disagreed, and so had to die. An attitude… Continue reading I am pride
I was enrolled. My age had enrolled me into adolescence and I was too happy to analyse this arena called my mind. Many had fought the battles of adolescence, some failed and others thrived. It was now my turn to experience this phase of mad sanity. Poor me. I allowed my tyres of ignorance to… Continue reading Unfortunate encounter
All the struggles and anxiety, the loneliness, Surrounding my life like an army. My mind, this fortress begins to crumble And suicide comes, hey, let's gamble. How do I gain my sadness freedom? There is an offer on the table for me. Suicide invites me into its kingdom, Well, is this the best way I… Continue reading World Suicide Prevention Day
Sigh! What was wrong with who I was? I looked into the mirror of everyone's criticism and saw the reflection of my mediocrity and inadequacy. Was I just bare with no trace of refinement? I never sought for change but society wanted to make me elegant and accepted so I had to conceal the identity… Continue reading Shattered!
There are moments hope enters it dry season And gives optimism it foggy weather. There are times hope becomes a mental illusion And giving up no longer has a border. Days when the morning sun shines bright, Yet around me all I see is a dark world. When wearing hope like a lens makes blind… Continue reading Define Hope
I've seen love spread like a wildfire, Now more than ever I wish to burn. To feel the heat of it burning desire, For a heart to see me and truly yearn. Love is an epidemic running wild And I so wish to be on it quarantine. God forbid my symptoms be mild, Do inject… Continue reading Love thirst
I hope you enjoy this poem I wrote 🙏💚 It’s about how money through bribery and corruption has become the fundamental asset to win a case in court. A way for the rich and guilty to escape the law. It saddens me that it happens as such and I hope that in future, we the… Continue reading Courtroom apocalypse
Forgive me Mama. Forgive me for I have sinned against your love. Time in years have passed but still these memories keep haunting me. Back to the days when I was a fool for outside opinion so I chose some strangers and neglected you, my champion. It lingers in my mind how young me was… Continue reading I thought wrong😔
Why do you always want things easy and simple, That you hear hard work and your whole body is on instant cripple. Have you not heard of no pain no gain? Why not join the queue and simply stay in lane. Allergic to work but you want food to eat, Open your eyes and see… Continue reading Fill in the blank
Can I tell the fairies about my wishes, Or do I pray to the gods for my needs? My pleas can flood an ear if I am to say, But the answers to them have been put on drought. Holding on to faith when my hands are greased with doubt I go on my knees… Continue reading Amen!🙏
This very moment is now. Soon, your now will become your then, and if you're to spell back now; literally and figuratively, what would you have won by then? Sometimes we seem to think time is a stopwatch, chosen by our pleasure for a pause or reset. But in fact time waits for no man.… Continue reading Tick-tock
Is it by chance where we end up to be, or is everything in it course predetermined?Perhaps the universe laughs looking down upon us, making us players of its secret dice roll. We keep planning the future reciting it outcomes, as though we're gods of this rotating ball of sphere. For some, probability has become… Continue reading UNKNOWN
Leaders of the motherland, The economy robbers, thier alias brand. Men and women of authority ruling the mass With lies too heavy, drowning the light weight hope of these citizens. The many contracts and the promises uttered, Yet roads are built in cedi notes, folded in wallets leathered. The people cry and wail in absolute… Continue reading Them that rule
Today Ghana celebrates its independence Hurray!!! Hurray as a formality and not of pride. For of pride, what would I be proud of? That we've been emancipated Only to be chained by our allegiance to corruption Or by the sarcastic flourish of our economy? Mistake not my judgement as unappreciative. For I'm glad our forefathers… Continue reading Happy independence day? Ghana @ 62
Quite recently I was both homoured and intrigued into deep thought about a post all too bizarre on social media that read, "Dracula used to feed on virgins until in 2018 when he died of hunger". Thought-provoking, but how true is this analogy of the present reality of our society. A statement that when spiralled… Continue reading Chastity: R.I.P
Long before the widespread photo of the KNUST student brutalized to the point of massive swells on the head by the institution's security men, multiple video evidence had surfaced time and again but in vain, due to the lack of objective action by the school's administration. This remained a major concern to the entire student… Continue reading Brutality, demonstration, vandalism, home sweet home.
Three point two five, sixteen point nine, zero point seven eight. The word form of some decimals. What for? Could be the error of a banking staff, the answer to a maths problem or the scary determinant of a student's first class. Mr decimal, the merciless judge of incompetent banking staff that employs unemployment in… Continue reading Mr decimal
Numbers and names, black and white, these are the core components that give the noticeboard it limited VIP status. " Them paste the results o squad" is all that's needed to bring the crowd to the long deserted noticeboard. It's where a student's name drifts into shame or gets a lift to fame. The numbers… Continue reading That noticeboard
Hands trembling, chaotic thinking, cancellation with regrets, the broken silence of paper flips and the unison of the shout of "eiiii" when " five minutes more" is screamed in an examination hall. These are the nerve racking moments that can power a brainstorm or finalize a break down. The desire for satisfaction and the rush… Continue reading Five minutes more!!!
