Poem: Is Ghana Your Ardent Passion? Eagle Soar!

By Kwesi Atta Sakyi 9th October 2011

Is Ghana your passion?
Seek truth, peace and justice
Make them your fashion
Not to engage in tribalism or factions
Every true Ghanaian has compassion

Idle talk has its cost
But truth liberates and elevates if you are lost
Weigh your diction, be savvy with self restraint
A true and civilized Ghanaian seeks progress
Gird on your armour and not undress
Your ignorant nakedness in ghanaweb congress

Shame on you if you regress
People from China are Chinese
Are people from Ghana Ghanese?
True identity marks you out a Ghanaian
A vulture cannot be an eagle or vice versa

You are an eagle, an eagle, an eagle………..
And Ghanaian eagle forever you shall be
You were programmed to soar high above all
When duty calls, to Ghana give your all
Face challenges and turn them into opportunities
Don’t be embittered and be filled with gall
To basics go learn ancient wisdom,
Ananse fables and local lore
