Must we aim to please others but not ourselves?

Must we aim for the meat without hunting for games?

Must our skin reflect our thoughts?

Dark is doom, is that it?

Are the naturals we see turning our environment into a jungle?

Yes, imitation has landed some of ours in the back

But what happened to:

‘When the child defecates on the laps, they are not cut off but washed?’

What happened to tending to the sick and dying instead of the silly playful?

What happened to letting others live their lives,

Making their own mistakes and learning from them?

What happened to the individual will?

Stuck we are.

Hunger continues deteriorating

Thirst burns our hearts

Yet we chase naughty children down dangerous tunnels.

Let us beware,

Let us ourselves advise,

Let us pause to reflect,

‘Cos we might just fall, collapse and be no more.

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
