THE TREE OF HOPELESSNESS

We have reached the tree of hopelessness
On whose biggest stool branches sit foolishness
Who order for your beautified abode
After their worked thoughts rode
In gains of power
And a presence many will cower
Odomankomah gye wo man!

II
We are wearing clothes of indiscernible thoughts
Our minds with manipulations bought
Advertisements of a heavenly earth
Demonizing even struggles of dying breaths
Miracles on hard work
Loving of high jerks
Otwereduampong gye wo man!

III
Have you seen the magnified Jesuses in limousines?
Seen self gratification in grand scenes?
Have you seen the clothes of magazines
Against your hungry stomachs with no luck in beans?
Oh the suffocation for their little means
Against the tightest apathy of your peoples jeans?
Okasapreko gye wo man!

IV
You see the blowing lollipops hiding in working podiums
You know the dying paupers sipping their poisonous sodiums
You know the stinking rot covered by your worshipped fame
Don’t you love your name enough to name and shame?
Okatakyie gye wo man!

V
We need no umbrella with gully holes in this insane though rain!
We need no hope plane with an obvious crash on these plains
We need a map from which generations can tap
Not chaos that will our generations trap
Awura mu Owura gye wo man!

      1. Yes it is. All these fake ministers are doing is bilking gullible vulnerable people out of their hard earned money so they can be rich. They disguise their begging as tithing which was under the law. We are under grace. Jesus went about doing good and helping people. All people no matter what race or religion. Jesus commands the church to feed the hungry, take care of widows and orphans plus stand up for the disabled and homeless. These fools on TV and online are in business to make themselves rich.

      2. The Gospel of greed pastors seem to have skipped over the judgement scriptures which clearly state that they will be thrown into outer Darkness. They will plead Lord in your name we have done this and that. Then the Lord will say, workers of evil I never knew you. God knows the heart.
        Or as my maternal grandmother Hattie Finney Banks used to say, They are going to split hell wide open.

      3. True. My maternal grandmother Hattie Finney Banks was born in 1905 so she had many fascinating sayings.
        True again that if African and African Americans were to invest their money within our communities and nations poverty, homelessness and hunger would be cut by 95percent.

      4. Very true. Our fore mothers were witty and knowledgeable. Mine, grandmother, was one wise woman. Amazing the tree of life, these leaves that fall in winter only to be replaced by worse ones to enjoy summer. Sad.

      5. Yes my Sister. Sometimes I wonder if some of us are going backwards instead of forward. However the Lord God has his remnant. A few with common sense who continue to shine our lights in Africa and America. Let’s continue to shine brightly above the fray.
