DON’TS

Lock no one in the cave of pity
For it puts clothes of low self confidence
…and shoes of vulnerability on them

II
Lock no one in the prison of hate
For it’ll make you their prison warden
Babysitting them and wasting your emotions
Forcing life demotions on you

III
Lock no one in the abyss of utter gratefulness
For it will lock their chances of flying
Your rope of devotion tying them down
And when they break free
Bitterness bugs your heart with regrets

IV
Lock no one in the fence of bitterness
For your bad prayers might consume you
…with them
And your journey through life will turn thorny

V
Lock no one in the room of your complete trust
Fallibility is a human flaw
Their failure to live up to your expectations
…might kill your love for humanity
Boxing all in your fort of distrust

VI
In a world of moderation
Love with your head and heart
Live like a death chases
Cry when your heart pools with sadness
Laugh when your heart is filled with happiness
Just lock no one in an abyss you cherish
…and or hate
This journey flips and turns
Hops and jumps
Runs and flies
From great things to their antonyms
Knowing that is knowing life
…and living it

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. :)
