Columnist: The Royal Enoch

Under A Rainbow Sky In Ghana

Click to read all about coronavirus →

The rain is pouring
Yet the land is dry
The rivers are flowing
But not to the sea
The birds are singing
Yet silence fills the air
The music plays
But not to a dancing feet

The land is happy
Yet its people live in tears
The flowers bloom
But not for a bride's groom
Clarity fades
When confusion preaches doom
Angels would surely take flight
When devils fail to make room

The air is silky soft
But it hardens a man
The sun is shimmering bright
Yet the heart grows heavier by the day
Equal opportunity for all
Or is it equal opportunity for some
A woman is sure pretty
But not to a man's broken heart

The night paints the sky black
Soon the dreamers would be back
A new day is promised
But not until I retire my worrying mind
May I wake up happy
May I wake up less sorrowful
May I wake up with the knowledge
That hope is worth the bargain

Silence is golden
So I would let my eyes do the talking
Life is fair
So I would not despair
Maybe one day
Somewhere not that far away
We shall all feast
Under a rainbow sky in Ghana
