About Me and My Poetry

I have been a poet for the past 30 years or so. My background is in communications, working mostly for nondescript media outlets. I have lived in New York City since 1972, but now reside at Mount Vernon, NY. My passion for poetry started when I was very young, when my mother used to read me bedtime stories. She, however, wanted me to become an engineer, operating trains; but I chose other options, with being a poet as one of them.

Money is useful only for
paying off for something.
Buying a house or a car
or an Airplane ticket or
a child's school fees; etc.

Those are some of life's
necessities; and exchanging
them to be possessed by you
must be done only through
one simple act or channel.

The bank account may be full;
and there is no need to think
of how to feed the family or
buy clothing for them and the
pet peeves that are fancied.

Lying awake in bed after a
long night's sleep every day
doesn't cost a thing, or faced
off with some serious work
doesn't create any problems.

All things have been taken
care of; even a health insured
payment has already been made
to cover everyone, and doctors
would prefer to visit instead.

Listening and seeing are free
from Nature, and if they have
to be paid for, how much will
that cost? A Hundred dollars or
ten thousand pieces of gold?

That will not cover even a single
breath of air, which happens to
be priceless and therefore cannot
be bought. Laughing anything off
needs no transfer of money.

"The Best Things In Life Are Free",
is a common saying. Money doesn't
play any part in those things, and
the amount sitting in the vault is
there of no use, but for purchasing.

EMMANUEL BANDOH.
