THE NATURE OF THE BLIND (by: Tetteh Sackey X Poet Dela)


I woke up,
On an unknown time,
The world looked darkened to me,
I thought it was still late in the night,
I tried to get a little light to make me happy,

Rather,
Darkness smiled at me,
I was narked when it smiled to me,
Because I was the mzee around,
Hardily did I notice?
Blindness has hugged me,
Therefore I cried for help,

Because,
My new world was more darkened than my natural world,
My natural world was nebulous,
But now,
It is beyond that,
Oh people! Oh friends! Oh family!
I’m I now a stranger to my society?
I’m I now a rejected of my friends?

My sight becomes visionless
Destinations become mirages
Deprived to view
What nature offers
My senses loses a brother

I’m I not like you?
Why do we get such treatments?
Warders and wardresses are being assigned to confine us,
As if, we are prisoners,
You who think you are a world-beater,
Hear us! We form part of the world,
The world is incomplete without our presence,

We are given war-farin,
Not in the intention of treating thrombosis,
But,
We are likened to rats,
Arise oh strong, arise oh weak, arise oh humans,
For our living does not depend on you,

But,
A Mighty Hand,
We may be friends to darkness,
But are friends to a great light,
We may be blind but our senses work,
We may be sad but rivers of love flows within us,
We may be blind but are saved from the sins of the eyes,
Smile oh companions, smile oh friends,
We are always at the fore,
But,
Nobody notices us.

  1. Nice piece but I don't get the hyphen in the anticoagulant 'war- farin'.
