Portrait - Leonard Opoku Agyemang

'At long last the battle has ended
Ghana...is free forever'
A joyous daybreak it was
A long night of captivity ended
A great beacon of hope
Shines like the effulgence
Of the tropical midday sun
Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!

But Her embryonic days and NOW
Two scores and ten have passed
Yet the Odyssey seems unending
The whirlwinds of indiscipline
Continue to shake Her very foundation
Coups! Chaos! Crisis!
Tyranny! Terror! Torture!

Here She stands on this Sahara state
Sweltering with the heat
Of injustice and oppression
Far, far beyond the horizon
She sees an Oasis of 'Freedom and Justice'
