Let them answer me

Let them make me see

Let my thoughts side with thee

By letting the words the Bible harbour that

“We were made in the image of God”

Clearer in my thoughts daft shade


Can the pious God

Who is known as a sage

And speaks in parables

Mean we are alike in deeds?

Bloodthirsty animals

Whose back biting hobbies

Kill souls faster than bodies

In a world of brutality

Where the strongest bully survives?


All that is good of humanity

Can half the water calabash

Whose full content can do nothing

To satisfy the working farmer on a cold day

All that is wrong of humanity

Cannot fit the earth; our habitation,

Not even if it’s multiplied by a million

What is this image that God supposedly possess?


Could some Bible contributors

Be drunkards whose words

Were conjured from the high realms

Of ram?

Images of pain

Images of greed

Images of selfishness

Images of dissatisfaction

Images of deceit

Images of murder

And listings which have no space

Let the bad images

At least flee from sanctuaries

So thoughts can be bias and say

We are the images of God’s chosen

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. :)
