KOD's poem for Alan Kyeremanten
Ghanaian media personality and founder of Rhytms on the Da Runway, Kofi Okyere Darko popularly known as KOD has written a poem for former Minister of Trade and Industry, Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten who has declared that he will be running as an independent candidate in next year’s general elections.
KOD posted his poem on his Facebook page, and as expected, a number of his friends trooped to the comment section to express their views on the poem.
Kafui Coffie wrote: That's poetry that I can relate. It's so beautiful like a butterfly.
In the words of SO Justice, “Butterflies also symbolize rebirth, hope, and bravery. Seeing one is a sign that positive change is transpiring, and brave forces are watching over you and ensuring graceful transitions. The butterfly encourages you to flow through your transformation with confidence”.
For Kweku Aboagye, he believes butterflies are easy preys for lizards. “Very impressive but, butterflies don't live long,” Kofi Antwi-Boasiako wrote.
Here is the poem:
For my friend Hon. Allan Kyeremateng on his new journey.
In gardens kissed by morning's gentle light,
A butterfly emerges, takes its flight.
From cocoon's cradle, it breaks free, anew,
Embarking on a journey bright and true.
With fragile wings, it flutters through the air,
A symbol of rebirth, a sight so fair.
Its colors dance like rainbows in the sky,
As it explores, so graceful, so high.
The world unfolds, a canvas for its dreams,
In every petal and in crystal streams.
Each flower's nectar, a sweet, tempting call,
Invites the butterfly to savor all.
So, let us learn from this winged friend's grace,
As we begin our journey, find our place.
Like butterflies, we too can start anew,
In every dawn, our dreams can take their cue.
With courage, spread your wings, embrace the chance,
To change, to grow, to join the cosmic dance.
For life's a journey, full of wonder's gleam,
Just like a butterfly in morning's dream.
Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, a former Minister of Trade and Industry stated in press conference on Monday, September 25, that he will contest the upcoming 2024 presidential elections as an independent candidate.
He explained that his decision to establish a new Movement for Change in Ghana was premised on his passion to bring renewed hope to Ghana especially the teeming youth who are calling for change and to be saved from the duopoly of NPP and NDC governance.
As expected, the news of his resignation from the NPP and to go independent has been making headlines since yesterday and a number of celebrities have not been left out of the ongoing conversation.
