BEAUTIFUL NONSENSE

When it begins
…fear places three choices on a table
1…kneel to submit
2…act to defy
3…do nothing for a blow over
That is the beautiful nonsense

II
When you pick 1
You accept to be a doormat forever
When you pick 2
…you might stumble and get stuck over needs
For an abrupt cut off of dependency poses a scare
But gradually necessity brings in ideas
…and survival pushes for hard work
…then a gradual independence wins
When you choose 3
…it might blow over but die to rebirth
That is the beautiful nonsense

III
So choose to stand or choose to kneel
But choose the one which makes you feel –
…human
For death touches the soul the moment you give in to unfair suffering
And the spirit becomes a bitter hosted
So hold the reigns of action
When you’re faced by all the beautiful nonsense the world throws at you

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. :)
