FEATURED: What A Reader In Ghana Wrote To Yours Truly: The Baptism Of Adam Revea...



Immortalising Awo Frema

Nana Frema

Granny, it is you, I write to immortalize
Though all are mortals to pass away one day
To be dined on by termites who capitalize
On the dead when they die one day...

Nana, where would we have been without you?
Breadwinner and a provider to all,
Not only your own but to all neglecting the shortfall;
A legacy that will live on even after your demise...

An illiterate but mother to literates and a born heroine,
Who is addicted to success and looks down on failure,
Encouraging the weak and providing assistance to all...
Yes, Awo Frema, Obaa Yaa Asantewaa, you deserve it all!

Oyoko ba, obunu nana, abrewa saa ba, you are a living legend...
You are a mother, father, grandma, uncle,and sister to us...
We can never ever repay you alas...
For the wondrous cross you bore and still bear...

May God bless you and keep you...
