The headache has become a brain tumour.

Now it shows.

I see, and you see

Great abysmal monks in an abbot of a bush

Effortfully breaking rules, adopting girls for pleasure

Reeking of self-loath and awakening poignant fears

In wombs and abdomens of earthly human makers

All in the name of faith and selfish desires.

Could it be Chinua Achebe foresaw?

“Things fall apart, the centre cannot hold”

Yes, things are falling apart

And the centre’s hands have been severed.

How can beings take lives of fellow beings without knowing how to form human blood?

How can faith force one to impose his ideals on the other?

Are some people created with two or more brains?

What makes them think theirs are superior?

Hiding and insulting

Hiding and warning

Bombing and blasting

Training and abducting

More bombings and warnings

We want none of these

Brave men hide not!

Egalitarianism is what we crave for

When will God, in whose name many of these atrocities are caused

Open His mouth?

When will He verify what He made His prophets write?

When will He let us know what is good and what is bad?

Seeing as we have lost all reasoning.

When will reasoning dawn on disgruntled worshippers

That this world belongs not to them?

You can throw the world away

If you fit not

Lose your soul instead of taking souls you cannot account for

The world will be a better place without killers

Even children know that

I might sound bitter

But desperation forces words out of dull mouths

Please let the world be.

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. :)
