PITIABLE PERSONS

Those born with silver spoons in their mouths
Mostly have heated knives stuck in their asses
Making it difficult for them to breathe
But the shine also ban them from crying
Creating fountains of tears in their hearts
Fountains of tears which contaminate with years
Turning bitterness into bullying
…and looking down on others

II
So look keenly into the eyes of a bully
And you’ll see the frightened little child
…who grew not from fears
…and fought no open frights
Making aggression a defense mechanism
Walling shame with money and fame
Breakthrough with love and patience to see that pitiable person
…crying for help

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. :)
