Our Birthday

Fists in the air
Determined feet on ground
Resounding cries
Freedom bought

Not without a fight
Not without buried fears
Not without bloodshed
Freedom bought

Already birthed
Taken for greed
Sold for gain
Bought with pain

The rebirth
Got by few
Hoped by many
Freedom bought.

Author’s note: I haven’t seen a people like Ghanaians. We laugh together, cry together, disagree together, pray together… On our birthday I believe we’ll doubtless see the so desired growth together. It’s our independence!! πŸ˜‡πŸ˜˜
