Poem: The Power is Out Again

The power is out again
The phone is down again
No internet
No water today
The mosquitos are thick this time of year

I am remembering those days
I said
I’d never forget
But I did

I am remembering the people
I said
I’d never forget
And I haven’t

I sleep on the floor
I work and I scheme
I pray to do more
I  can not forget them
I can do more
I will do more

A friend returned from visiting Ethiopia, reminding me of the luxuries of my life, and my friends in Ghana.
