I walk home with my books in my bag,
Down the long road that I am sick of
looking at.
I think to myself,
This will be one of the last times I walk
this road.
I keep going,
Pressing my feet into the pavement as hard as I
I stomp away the days I wasted in this place.
I try to think of the
day when I’ll be free of it,
Try to imagine what those steps would feel
The steps leading to that all powerful rolled piece of paper.
I kick
little rocks into the future ahead of me,
I keep going,
My step lightens
as I wonder of the future,
Will those steps lead to more years of hated roads
and books and bags,
Or will those steps lead to my dream.

i like this poem because i feel the same as the writer of the poem who just wants to get out and off of the path that they keep walking daily.



South Africa was the land of hope where most Ghanaians believed their darling team will excel. Over 3 decades of under achievement was to be banished in 2013. Listening to the amiable President John Mahama, he charged the Black stars to win and officially pledge support for the team.

The black stars were prepared at Abu Dhabi with quality friendly matches organized for the team. Alas! The wait is still on as the stars failed to shine at the second attempt in two years. They left the shores of Accra with a lot hope but returned empty handed. After watching the first 2 matches of the team at the AFCON 2013, my doubts were solid and factual analysis showed me this team is short of been African champion. In answering the popular question on the street of Accra, Tamale and Kumasi which is “WHAT WENT WRONG?”, I have identified…

INDEPENDENCE, OH (92.3 The Fan) – Cavaliers All-Star guard Kyrie Irving is officially questionable for tonight’s big home matchup with Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers.

“He will probably be a game-time decision,” Cavs coach Byron Scott said Friday. “He did some things yesterday, did some shooting, but nothing strenuous that would tell me one way or another if he’s okay or not.”

The Cavs point guard has missed the last two games with a sore/hyperextended right knee, and the club have been able to notch wins over the Bulls and Raptors without him.

“He would like to play period,” Scott said. “At the end of the day it’s my decision.”

Scott says that he would like Irving to make sure Irving is at or near 100 percent before he puts them in harms way against a very good Clippers team.

“One bad cut and he can still tweak…

BOSTON (CBS) — New York newspapers aren’t always fair, accurate or reliable, but man, they can really be funny sometimes.

That’s on display quite often in the sports pages, and it was the case on Friday morning in the New York Daily News.

Gary Myers wrote a column which suggested the Patriots could sign Darrelle Revis as a free agent after the 2013 season, arguing it’s imperative for the Jets to trade Revis before the deadline or sign him long term in order to prevent the potentially disastrous situation of Revis sporting a Patriots jersey.

To drive the point home, the paper ran a large image of Revis rocking a blue No. 24 Patriots jersey, with inset photos of smiling Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.

“It would be humiliating for the Jets if Revis, one of the top five players in franchise history, packs up and leaves for New…
