Don’t Judge Me

Monday Sep 2, 2013 -

ok-judge-2Every day we judge other people by our standards, failing to acknowledge that we have failed as a people to provide the necessary family and social interventions for the have-nots.
Please read this poem and listen to the song which is my next message for this messed age…

Ghana no know me
Twenty two million people and I’m still so lonely
Live or die it’s all on me
Live a lie no not me
Then the streets that holds me
Moulds me
Tells me
To make shots like Koby
Na dabi menso m3y3 obi [translated as SO TO BECOME A FUTURE SOMEBODY]
Mummy can’t stand and daddy cares not
Looking forward to this love that never turns up
So I’m running to the same world rejecting me
Ironically they are accepting me as their enemy
The man in me my Moses sets me free
The thorns you see are roses best believe
I joined the gang of hopeless many meees
The rugged the endless poverty
So I turned to robbery
To escape this life of poverty
Now my home is the jail
You can stand out and judge if you will

My family no know me
I am a tree in the forest and I’m still so lonely
Fresh or dry it’s all on me
Live to die no not me
The society hates me breaks me
Makes me angry that my mum’s boyfriend rapes me
As a girl I’ve got to show bravery
Mummy can’t talk and daddy cares not
Looking forward to this love that never turns up
So I am going through this world thinking life is dead
And a happy ending is in a book I read
I make I red I will kill for a thorny bed
Without a bakery how am I to make my bread
Life is a curse to find God is to be blessed
But I can only do that if I can find me first
On the street I am a prostitute
Without skills what am I supposed to do?
Now my home is the jail
You can stand out and judge me if you will

These clothes covering my bones
Are made for me alone
These clothes covering my skin
You cannot fit in
Nobody knows nobody knows all I have been through
Nobody knows nobody knows all u have been through
So don’t judge me
