Kofi Awoonor – The Journey Beyond

0

The howling cry through door posts
Carrying boiling pots
ready for the feasters.

Kutsiami the benevolent boatman;
When I come to the river shore
Please ferry me across
I do not have tied in my cloth the
Price of your stewardship.

Ghanaian poet, Professor Kofi Awoonor (1935-2013), died in the #Westgate Mall terror attack.  You were such an inspiration to many of us. Rest in peace.
