BELIEVABLE LIES

We love believable lies
…compared to unbelievable truths
So we live in the lies and kill our truths
While praying through false channels
…for positive results
What is the formula for this crude mathematical hope?

II
No one lies happily in lies
…and expect to be comfortable in the grave of truth
Bodies and minds get comfy
…with what they’re fed as time adjusts their taste
So live not in houses built with believable lies
And expect the unbelievable truths to be kind
…when their stage shines

III
Dreaded democratic demonstrations drag dragons
…to become dogs
Lurking likes lick crocodiles to become lizards
Many a pythons have turned water snakes
…because unbelievable truths were replaced with believable lies
Suns never walk on legs to brighten our land
The earlier you brave through unbelievable truths
…to break down the believable lies plaguing our growth
…the better for us all

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. :)
