WORDS UNSAID

Sometimes, in the face of anger and accusations
The heart pushes the mind to drain all insanities
…for its calm
While blocking the mind and its thoughts

II
Sometimes, defeat dangles deceit of shame
…attaching it to silence
But words unsaid have no judgments

III
So you can cripple me with your curses
You can annoy me with your accusations
You can defeat me with your defamation
But you won’t move my mouth in a shouldn’t
Just know that “couldn’t” contributes not to my “wouldn’t”
Experiences train to heavy tongues
Real living teaches temper to slow down
Maturity processes wisdom in ample time

IV
So bark all you can till your voice goes hoarse
Only dogs without teeth bark that long
The real confrontation is in the bite
I bet you’ll hurt your gums in your try
…and cry to my pity sigh
Heavy barrels travel steadily
…because they possess weight

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. :)
