COVETORS

In a twinkle of an eye
A tongue can push you through filth
To clothe you with a lie
So much so no truth can desilt
Because tongues are not only sharper than swords
…they’re more poisonous than serpents

II
In a twinkle of an eye
A mouth can take you south of your north
And cover your sun rising in your east
…to kill it from reaching your west
Why?
Because mouths are not only unpredictable with words
…they host much more venom than cobras

III
In just a twinkle of an eye
A finger, backed by a bad mind
…can file off the shine from your stardom
Why?
Because some hearts live in love of others’ fall
…forgetting they’re spending expensive time
…which could buy greatness for themselves

IV
Humanity and horrid humidity!
Hustles and hopelessness!
Heckles and horrors!
Hoists and history!
Hatred hides in hard hunts
…hissing and hindering hearts
…honking for happiness

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. :)
