SORES ON THE WORLD

Sores from our sins
…score frowns owing to our stubbornness
Shooing peace from our calls
Pushing chaos to us
And still writing terror on balls of our eyes
This is the irony that is ironing humanity

II
At all times
…some are bubbles and others are arrows
The latter aiming for the former in shots
The former shouting in bursting
…or lighting and losing in the shine of suns and moons
Until piles feed fedupness
…and cause them to vomit their frustrations
Oh the sores on this world!

III
In the huge pain of racism
…zoomers can find ethnicity and labelling
As psychopaths think themselves worthy of uprooting others
Monsters join their chant to form cults
…difficult to bring to order
Making laws twisted
…confusing law enforcers who form a divide
The monster folks and the adhering folks
Clashing in scandals unfathomable
Oh sores on this world!

IV
Until death becomes a reminder
…of all being travellers in passing
These sores will never heal
It will keep getting bigger until hatred
…scraps every flesh from the bones of this world
That is the danger
…of the sores on this world!

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. :)

Sizzling. Exquisite piece.
Amoafoawaa the sores can be healed
John 10:9,10 and also Isaiah 53 has something that can heal.
Racism as Oseagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah said, “is the foulest intellectual rubbish ever propounded” racism is a problem of low self esteem, as you have clinically proven, it is a deep rooted and seated psychological tumour and disorder that requires special surgery as it were, this piece is one of the “surgeons”
Mmo!!
