Africa. The system.


Africa. The system.
Feeling, still, like a 50 cedi note
in a system that only wants 5 cedi notes.
Despite the struggle, I wake every morning willing to try again.
I value actions.
You value words contradicted by your actions
How different things would be if the two were aligned.
We would elevate each other and overcome all obstacles
but I don’t trust you to have my best interest at heart
and you don’t trust me to stay, taking all your shit
until you decide to fix up.

this isn’t a poem it’s a stream of consciousness, I think about it all day
every day and I still don’t know what decision to take
