Faith - Poem by Duku Akwasi Odwaa Boffour

Friend, the world is hard
Countryman, the world is really hard
Brother, the world is very hard
Where problems are stable mountain
In the middle of a long journey

Friend, don't forget problems
That shines the day is greater
Than the rains in a month
But the blessings
Mightier than the the blue blue ocean

Countryman, tell the sons of my father
The womb from which I came from
That I bury the dead alone
Because of my Faith

    I like the repetition in this poem which, together with its imagery, gives it its power. I wish English was an easier language for a budding poet. (Report) Reply
