Far From Home

... look down the hill
Men are growing Tails
Women are digging caves
no tonight in Knights last night
It was the soul
that changed; they said
..
Like the absence of red oil
in Mid-Night lantern
The soul fades— to them, so it failed
..
Captured with 3 catapults shots
& 4 young stones in fortified pot
I am still not caged
... they said; I am no bird
..
Not a single sky
of ordinary chiefdom
Falls a drop of wisdom
on my clapping lips —
..
I walk far from home
... unshod in stealth of shackles
even when the shadow
has not given me a tip.
..

Kofi Akwa has woven an artistic piece of literary talent using the current problem in the Ghanaian society and drawing awareness on the need to pursue wisdom, the lack of which will bring collapse of morality. He, the talented growing boy, has a long way ahead to making a mark in his time. Bravo, I say. Boy, you make me proud as a teacher.
