ABUSE OF THE FUTURE

I know a tree with fruits
…mostly get the attention of the wingful, legful and even crawlers
But can we for a moment think of the plants
…destined to be trees
Plants destined to replace the fruitful trees of today?

II
There are many of such plants
Dying in their numbers
Due to the shielding of the sky
…by the big branched trees with full leaves
Which overtake their suns
…deny them of needed rains
Although the sky factors in their share
…even before the formation of clouds
Their air are also blocked by the overbloated
…stifling them to die faceless
…and nameless

III
For every such plant which dies
The future suffers drought and hunger
Too bad eyes only care about now
It is sad this scenery fits perfectly in our human lives
Making the future hazy
…and hopeless
Even for this sitting muse
Such an abuse of the future in use!

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. :)
