Heritage Killed Her - Poem by Edmund BaffourAwuah

Still here
Here on this soil one more time
I stand to watch the sky again
Searching for the feelings missed
The reasons lost
Cos’ I’ve still not felt the thrill
Of soaring beyond the stratus
My foot may not touch the soil
Of the land west, my fictitious world
The thought of its splendor entire
To dazzle my mind
To feel the breezes of a new life
And say to my soul
You’re here at last
Here is heaven
This is the dream

Oh deep blue sky above
Twinkling little star, you lied to me
You took away my austere ambitions
And filled my thoughts with subtle illusions
So again
Just one more time
I stand before you, you still plain sky
Searching for the answers
Asking, just thinking out loud
Where did the star go?
The twinkling little star
Did I kill her?
Perhaps I did
But no, love killed her
The love for my heritage
Yes, heritage killed her
