GIVEN TO TEACH

Image result for pictures of major mahama maxwell

The code of souls was breached

When I saw the gates of death

Being torn by many who morality preached

When their swords of advice wore their breath

In hidden and opened quarters of their sons

As they pushed me through by cruel runs

II

I felt the lighting slaps of hands

And bore the gruesome breaks of stones

I felt the painful hits of sticks

And the bruising peels of blocks

I felt the fleeing pins of dust

None showed a friendly sight

But I stood and was blinded by the pain of loss

Which mine would feel at the sight of my last days

III

I prayed the chaos would rise to slap

And not form a cane or a death slab

I prayed to be the end of the crap

And be the line of enlightened map

I go home with shame of honour

With national lessons as my banner

Let minds be opened

As hearts see more of the need for thoughts

Even in our monstrous brutism

Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 9th June 2017 in honour of Major Maxwell Adam Mahama who was wrongly killed through mob justice on May 29, 2017.
