BUT WE LOST IT

I still remember you in everything I do

I wore you like a bruise proudly on my forehead, displayed for all to see

I still want to tell you about everything right after it happens.

There is no you but I will not let this kill me

You marked me but I survived, as easy as it would be to give up, to give in to this great sadness

I will not let it take control

I will not let it consume me because I am stronger than that

I was broken, empty, depressed and in despair but now I smile.

You will fade and I will still be here, being me…….SURVIVING.

I WAS LIKE THAT

From the time I was left alone until now

I never expected anything from people

So I was okay

Whether someone misunderstands or understands me………

It didn’t matter to me at all.

“The things I do, whether it was gonna bring me pain or it was
the wrong choice, it didn’t matter… I’d still do it”.

I realized am always going to be like this…no matter how much I
try, I always fall into the same pit…

I guess that’s what saying goodbye is always like………

Like jumping off an edge, the worst part is making the choice to
do it.

Once you are in the air, there is nothing you can do but to to
let go.

SCARS

In that shutter island room faces away from the sun.

I pick my writing pad, pacing back and forth, all confused.

How can I write when there is nothing

Now my quiet mind sits there in the purple kind.

I think of what is over, forgetting the world around me.

****************************************************************

How can I see when all there is, is pain.

The scars on my arms are not as bad as the screams in my head.

How can I be a good a person when all I see is bad.

How do you justify an act of kindness, when all anybody sees is bad.

Graze my brain sockets and tell me what I am missing for my

heart is covered with scars and I seem lost.

CRUEL

I drown in the depths of your ocean
I suffocate as you take the air I breathe
Too much emotion, making me explode.

***************************************************************

I burn by the scorching heat of your dessert
I am lost in your maze of lies.
I am scarred by the blade of your selfishness.

***************************************************************

These scars that bind my heart still bleed at the mention
of your name but then I am blinded by the beauty of your light.

___________________________________________________
Why did I ever think you are beautiful when all these times, all you
ever wanted was to throw me into my grave.

HOME

So long had I travelled the lonely road

I stopped for a moment in my lonely way under the starlight.

I find my place

The lonely road, no longer I roam

We met, and were one in the heart’s desire.

You feel like home to me

Like a comfortable easy chair

A place where I can be myself

Where I can go to be free

In between the warmth of your embrace and the fierceness of your touch, I find my place lost inside your soul.

A place I can call mine.

A place where I can grow old.

(Your soul feels so much like home, that when I met you, I finally understood what they mean when they say Not all who wander are lost. For I always find myself wandering back in your arms… [‘Cynthia Go’] ).

SILENCE

Silence

Words without sound

In silence I loved him

Love without a song

In silence I have lost him

In silence I’ve longed for his hand

And in silence I’ve met emptiness

Leaving me out cold

Torn and broken

Rejected and scarred

Lifeless and alone

In silence I fell

And in silence I heard my own heart breaking

I loved you once upon a time

But the silence killed us…..

DEPARTURE

He asked :

You and me; can’t we be friends?

With tears rolling down her cheeks, she replied….

I told you before, I don’t do stuff like that.

In the beginning , you were a man to me, And now, my heart still calls you my man.

In the future, you will still be my first love. But then let’s pretend nothing ever happened between us.

When we meet, let’s not greet each other.

Let’s not even ask; ” Have you been well? ”

Even after a lot of time has passed………..

” It was like that before; just like a memory, let’s not smile and act as if we know each other.

Whatever The Start Was, I loved You…

The Polish Till You Shine team this week put smiles on the faces of disabled kids of the Salvation Army Rehabilitation Centre when they went out there to throw a party for them. The CEO Augustus Koranteng Kyei a.k.a Kobby Kyei together with his team visited The Salvation Army Rehabilitation Centre, Begoro in the Eastern Region where they went to feed over hundreds of kids and their mothers This is the second time Polish Till You Shine Foundation has embarked on such projects. Several items such as rice and beverages were present together with other items to celebrate with the kids The administrator of the Centre, Mr. Raymond Badu who was overwhelmed by the generosity showed by The P.T.Y.S team couldn’t hide his joy, thanked Kobby Kyei and his team for such a tremendous gesture and happiness they brought to the kids.

HEAVEN’S VERY SPECIAL CHILD (PART 2)

Children with special needs are children first. They have the same needs as all children thus; a place where they feel physically comfortable, loved and secure…. They have opportunities to play and learn; people who care about them and activities that allow them to be successful.

I call them Heaven’s Very Special Kids. Though they may need more time to learn and practice certain skills, they may need specific adaptations to help them succeed at certain activities. These children are not so different from typically developing children, they have lots in common and that’s the most important thing to remember.

Kobby kyei who is the C. E. O of #PTUS foundation in support with his team brought smiles on the faces of these kids, having a party for them and donating as well. In his speech, he made it known that kids may need more praise and encouragement to gain the skills typical for their age group. He went on to say kids with special needs need to learn about individuals with disabilities who have become successful in life, advising them to study hard, in this way they can become great leaders and role models to others.

I therefore encourage us to learn how to support these kids with the little we have and to respect them .

I am happy to be in support of the team….
