What Do We Do?

What do we do?

We trim words, we keep them locked within their very places of intent.
We shred them into fine particles for absolute apprehension.
We euphemize words to pamper the bad and the ugly.

Out of words coat we burst with hopes of unearthing the very serenity of language.
We gentrify the mere letters and provide a touch of flamboyance.
We soothe souls with weaved tales of scripts from sanctified thoughts.

We make the world,
we diagnose it of its sicknesses and offer free remedies.
Out of those scanty pebbles of alphabets, we create enormous effigies, constructions that abounds the skies and mountains of sentences that stimulates minds.

For all things were made equal with words spewed from holy calabashes.
I say God was and still the greatest of poets.
For he created a beautiful world with sentences, made man with an idea of unison and companionship.

Shakespeare couldn’t have said or written more, for he sought after God and never lost sight of the course. His images printed firmly in our minds, our actions and deeds brings to life thoughts of his speeches, like he knew love indeed.

BITTER SWEET 2

It was plainly felt I believe, I guess the gravity of what I did had a mild effect? if not, I wonder why not a single tad of your emotion was tickled? My journey through time to rectify my blunder has being derailed, those moments, when I had to turn an insomniac, just so I could re-tweet and favorite your tweets to quoting them to my peers have been reduced to nothing but debris.

My relentless efforts have been sieved off its value. I don’t blame you, for you perceived my apologies cheap and useless because they were neither backed by trips to the mall nor daily recharge top ups. You again deem me not worthy of your touch because you find the linings of my pockets unoccupied.

Meanwhile, you had me believe that ours was different, and that ours was finesse, an emotional monument build around not what we had but what we felt and held in our hearts, and that how far we could go depended on how strong we remained in what we believed in. After this astonishing behavior, you only leave me to wonder how this heart of yours could alter…index.

Farewell, President Mahama

You and I both know you never really wanted to be president. You are a fantastic Number 2 guy, and from many accounts, I hear are a genuinely nice person. But you were uniquely unqualified for the job to lead the nation, and that’s what’s gotten us to the myriad of quagmires Ghana is experiencing today.

Had everything gone according to plan, we would have known by close of day the people who benefited from the GHC 51 million cedi paid to the businessman. We might have understood why officials who swore to protect the state connived with others to steal from the state. Oh what joy this day would have been for us to finally know these hypocrites hindering the government’s fight against corruption. But this was coming. The NDC’s great anguish over the a potential oral examination of Woyome over the GHC 51 million judgement debt manifested when officials of the party turned on Amidu as if he is the enemy.

Alas! It did not happen. The much expected showdown between former Attorney General, Martin Amidu and businessman Alfred Woyome at the Supreme Court on Thursday, November 24, 2016 did not come off as scheduled. As Mr. Amidu predicted, Woyome who was screaming his readiness to face him in court applied for a review of the […]

Who we are

Who we are

“And please remember, you are the child of the centipede

Losing a limb will never cripple you”

Soulbase's Blog

This is for the one whose pride now lives at the refuse dump

And is constantly receiving hair cut advice from the vultures

The one whose dignity has been trampled on so many times

its closest relationship is with the patch ground on which it lies

This is for the one who has been told many times that beauty run

in the opposite direction when they first met

and that her ugliness drives the devil to accept Christ as his Lord and personal Savior

This is for the one whose fears have become visions

tied to the cloth of reality

This is for the one who feels lost in the maze of life

And feels his progress is taking him nowhere

This is for you

This is for me

This is for us

Wait!

Stop!

Breathe in!

Breathe out!

Smile!

Relax!

Take a good look at yourself, you are here…

How Ghana’s Official 59th Independence Day Brochure Became the Perfect Simile for the State of the Nation

Mind of Malaka

Many people are beginning to suspect that this current government – and indeed anyone that does business with this government – finds perverse pleasure in embarrassing the nation. It seems as though Ghanaians hardly have the opportunity to recover from one local scandal or international disgrace before the next one besieges us.

As a collective, we’ve managed to take it in stride. We’ve found ways to turn our tragedy into humor; to laugh at our dismal situations to keep from crying. We’ve turned our pain into art and then used that art as a sepulcher for our hopes, praying that one day a Chinese Jesus Christ will find it in his heart to resurrect the vision of our forefathers, reverse the tide of our misfortunes with his mighty Yuan and make Ghana great again. Instinctively, we know that the ordinary Ghanaian cannot possibly hope to affect change for him/herself or…

Cash-Based Relationships, Sex, and Valentine’s Day

Cash-Based Relationships, Sex, and Valentine’s Day

Mimesis Christou

I had a conversation with a young lady who had decided to give up her virginity for her boyfriend because he had “done so many things” for her. She couldn’t think of any other way to reciprocate than to give him a priceless gift—her virginity. Before I share with you some advice I gave her, it is important that we consider briefly the compromising situation cash-based relationships put us.

In the old days,“young girls were warned never to accept anything but a small, impersonal gift from a man”. But today many relationships are based on an economic exchange that suggest that once a man hands over a valuable gift to his girlfriend, she owes him something in return. Thus he begins to take certain liberties and break boundaries(Morse, 2000).

As Beth Bailey notes in her article ‘From Front Porch to Back Seat’, men view “dating as…

Bin Laden,the two kinds of Samaritans and GITMO

Having been a vocal critic of King Fahd and the Saudi government over their alliance with the United States, especially after Saddam’s August 2,1990 invasion of Kuwait when US troops were deployed in Saudi Arabia, Osama bin Laden was forced into exile. Sudan welcomed him. While there he established a new base for mujahedeen operations in Khartoum.

#TAG: The Neighborhood Anthology on Leadership & Authority ed. II by Yelle Hughes

My thought lies within the final paragraph……

My motto: To Limit Yourself is To Limit the Possibilities…keeps me going. To open myself to things that are different from me, to learn everyone doesn’t think like me and that’s okay. We are one being, one voice, we are…The Neighborhood
