Treasure Island

(Kumasi- Ghana)

Above All Creations


I will be the path to me fellow human,
I will make them know the plan of God for man.

Through me they will know the nature of life,
And the destruction of the devil with a knife.

Forever will live in the hearts of men,
The light of day from the devil's prey.

I stand in their sight as a god,
But the Omnipotent dwell in their heart as the God.

They will see through me a light,
As they walk in the night.

I sometimes hold it half a sin,
Putting in words the grief I feel as a fine.

For weeds like nature,
As babies nurture.

Half revealed in the soil,
And half concealed in the soul.

In words like weeds I'll wrap myself over,
Like blanket over my body I'll never shiver.

By the serene measure of my grief,
I'll enfold myself with great relief.

With praises and fulfillment in my heart,
like an old man resting in his hut.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
