Footprints in harmattan winds | Benjamin Nambu

Trees, yawning in drought

Forced to repent their decision

To remain rooted instead of fleeing

Their once wet barks

Branded with scars from sharp gun rays

As they stare down

At footprints of families gone farming

Fading in harmattan winds

Benjamin Nambu is from Ghana in West Africa. Writing poems, short stories, and motivational messages are very dear to his heart.
