Can I press out what is pressing me and make them straight?


By following the path-makers and prompting when their paths are crooked?

Am I assured all will be taken in good faith?

Am I assured of my head on my body after I voice all out?

Am I assured?

So I and my likes have been given a day

Can I talk about religions which murder in the name of saints?

Can I ask their overseers to get an interpreter for all to be clear and to stop losing precious lives?

Just answer, can I ask them to create just a simple goat and give it breath to replace the many lost?

Can I ask Politicians to account for every little money they and their families gain while in power?

Can I lambast the elderly in the society for talking about unnecessary things when the country is plagued by famine and even urinating is taxed?

Can I for the love of God ask the future of those on the streets as I pay my taxes?

Can I defend armed robbers considering the hardship of the economy?

Please define the day!

Define this day when mouths are still closed on many topics

When my blood alone cannot atone for the fury of some men by voicing the unvoiceable

When society backs them in their ruthless desire to be unchallenged

When the heat of the day has an unfathomable explanation and the stomach churns and complains in need

Define the day

Please define the day

And let us ride on knowing it is there in name

But not in deed.

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. :)

what a rhetorical poem. I wish someone could answer those questions. Nice piece dear, I always wonder where you get your inspirations and ideas from to write pieces like this.
