Treasure Island

Kelvin Owusu

(15-10-1988 / Ghana)

Alone With Convictions


Alone with a diminishing smile
Alone with and without self-conflict
Alone without a worry with plenty to worry
Alone without a thought
A blank mind brewing insanity wine
Alone without shadow in sight
A man of vision
Alone with the walks of hell and back
A man, wise, stillness
A voice filled with conviction
