Ghana ~By Teddy Totimeh

Ghana is beautiful

If you pause long enough

To see the colour in the squalor

If you pause long enough to sample the order in the odours.


Ghana is beautiful

If you stand long enough

To feel the humor in the clamour

And are not too particular

About what is correct and what is not.


Ghana is beautiful

When you appreciate the patience

Of a suffering people

Waiting to progress.
