ANSWER THE CALL

Sometimes a cock crows to call for help
…not to wake the sleeping
Sometimes a dog barks in its own danger
…and not to alert its owner of the approaching
Sometimes, just sometimes
Even eagles fall and break their wings
…their walk is not a call for laughter and slaughter
…but a call for a doctor
So put your humane emotions on
…and answer the call of the broken

II
Don’t rush into offence
Don’t rush into self defence
Don’t think they all pretend
We have bruised souls in depressed holes
…hiding in “smiling” and “happy” bodies
We have wailing hearts with clouded minds
…hiding in angry and bullying bodies
We have hurt spirits in vengeful veins
…calling for a balm of assurance
…and a sorry insurance
So put your humane emotions on
…and answer the call of the broken

III
It is your vigilance which can help heal a soul
It is your humanity which can help restore a sanity
It is your love which can fix one in a mix
Sometimes the loving is the most haunted
Look
…look well to see the truth
To help heal the broken
…to stand the journey of life
…till their glorious end

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. :)
