SEEDS

Seeds
Seeds feed leads to deeds
Feed
Feed leads seeds to deeds
Lead
Lead feeds to deeds and seeds
Deeds
Deeds lead seeds to feed

II
Pods
…created by gods
To have many nods
…through rods
Knowing they’re sods to seeds
Gods
…created by God
…to give many nods
…through sods
…seeded in pods
Nods
…fearful of rods
…knowing pods as sods
…given by gods to protect seeds

III
Seeds are minds
Pods are heads
Rods are knives

IV
Whichever explanation this confusion feeds you
You are a seed in a pod
…set to be rodded into turning seeds
…for the earth
So why waste it?

V
Whatever illusions this rhymes pose
Remember you’re a walking pod
…with seeds, rodded daily
…to feed life
So why waste it?

VI
Don’t wait for the rod
…to cut through to spill your seeds
…to rot your pod
It sure will make you bored
Don’t wait for your seeds to rot to feed
…maggots
It sure will make it whine –
…your soul
Until the earth feeds on you
…feed many seeds to deed you
…even in its feeds
Until you rot to blossom
That is the only win of living

VII
Remember
Feeding goodness leads to loss
…with your gone
Feeding problems leads to thankfulness, then forgetfulness
…with your gone
For the latter ceases suffocation
…and helps beloveds breathe
And the former gives suffocation
…and makes beloveds breathless
So choose wisely

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. :)
