DEFEATED SUNS

Many lessons are born each day
Making learning a requirement for wise minds
None fails to notice
…that defeated suns get no reverence
…from owners of wet clothes
They’d choose the heat of fire
No matter the gifts defeated suns shower

II
They can light
They can shine
They can lead to pots of gold
They can brighten
They can wake
But they can’t win hearts of the cold
Defeated suns remain symbols
…never idols

III
So shine your suns
Heat them to battle the cold
Light to work in bold to be sold
…as stars with your twinkling impact
For that is the best shine to light oblivion
After death acts hawk to catch you
…and accumulates forgetfulness on mortal minds

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. :)
