The scent of lust

The acrid scent of backbiting

The bad odour of hatred

The awful scent of theft

The foul scent of murder

I want to be the lotus flower to disinfect it all


The atrocious scent of ethnicity

The pungent scent of oppression of women

The unpleasant scent of racism

The poor scent of general labeling

The bad scent of covetousness

Like the lotus flower I need to disinfect it all


The god awful scent of false testimonies

The cheap scent of prostitution

The crappy scent of temptation

The dreadful scent of jealousy and rivalry

I don’t want to be the bleeding heart flower,

I need to be like the lotus flower to disinfect it all.

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. :)
