Poetry et al

poetry, prose, tips on what works for me

About Me

I grew up in a little town in the capital of Ghana. I never really wrote anything until around age 13 when I had begun to write a few short stories. Before then, reading for me was mostly on billboards and the few books I got from my friends in school, but my interest in novels would peak really fast.

The first poem I wrote was โ€˜morally wrongโ€™. I still cannot bring myself to recollect the erotic words of Climax. But that was what broke the ice for me. I quickly found my voice in another wayโ€”poetry. And this is what I love to write now, aside all others.

Welcome to my blog, I am Naa Takia.

    I see inner sufferings in your soul. Every poet and writer see the melancholic state of affairs around us. ‘Tis not local or regional–this is global–so sad!
