Black Cotton

Cotton stained in vintage history Paraded like a horror mistery Back to back it grows among thorns Like the pain we felt when June came last Black cottons we lost to red and transparent  elements Rain and fire took their soul Now told is our story on social media Accra remembers June 3rd is a…

Fret’Nai

Accra remembers as well as the North It’s getting cloudy Dark, blue and frowny The birds are hiding The litters are gathering The wind is mad Blowing dragon fire The ant is packing Men are tweeting Have you seen the skies? What date is it? June 3rd! Should we be alarmed? They all seek manner…

DIRTY LINEN

Painting history Blue, black, red colors Water, paint, brushes Board, canvas, apron Inspiration, determination, creation Memory replaying The ark, flood, death Raven, doves, eagles Unicorns, Lions, ox Death, regret, pain Spilled ink across table Dripping to the floor The painting flopped His linen stained, no sweat They all saw his pain, ©Officialmandy, 2016

I slipped on your personality And crushed into you Broke a leg and an arm Used your smile to bandage my fraction And my heart is divided into fractions confused Hello screams comes from my mind But my attention is all focused on this accidental scene.   I am lost in lust with you Yet…

BLACK GIRL’S HAIR

The cliche of fashion trends do not apply to growing a natural hair. It is a calling, a revelation, an inspiration. Texturizing creams are just for me another form of hair relaxer… why put the creams in and still call it natural…. the natural products are there to your expose… shea butter, coconut oil, avocado, pear, apple cider , bentonite clay… God made them for the hair protection and management …..

So Breathe

Drip it right through my emotions, pour my laundry out in my poems, with your face hardened upon thy chest and your wrath resting upon thy shoulders. Every letter i write is a dim break of poetry that you can never understand. On the hill top my mum washed my laundry, i learnt to wash…

HIDDEN LIGHT

Rails and trains Travelling astray Coy the mistress Soon to be distress Mountains and valleys Smiling on ashes Birds that sing Sun that scorches People and Hate Love and words Unity to build Destroying the lust The capture of sincerity Apologies to acceptance Miracles untold Moments unfold Majesty King Celestial shines Applause the trees And…
