ETOMATOS (Puzzle Poetry)

If the root of a tomato extends to eight directions
…with 7th acting 1st
…6th acting 3rd
…2nd acting 7th
…4th acting 5th
…5th acting 6th

…8th acting 8th
…and 3rd acting 4th
And holds the keys to the life of the plant
Use this key to unpuzzle this puzzle
…knowing the words are beads
…in a continuous count
…unbroken and unshaken by lines and stanzas
…in an 8 to 1 to 8 circle

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. :)
