DANGEROUS TRENDS

Politics will be the husband of global instability
And religion will be its wife
If we let the couple loose
We will lose ourselves
…and lose our world
Because the love that drives them
…are passionate fires which run wild emotions
…like horses at war
Only stopping when breaths flee bodies
Take note
Do take note of these dangerous trends

II
Once hypocrisy wins hearts
And hearts follow wolves thinking them sheep
The followed become Gods
…their silence in defeat
…and their grumbles in loss
Turn dangers to ride hearts into destruction
Only stopping when breaths leave bodies
Do take note of these dangerous trends

III
For we met a world we need to leave
…safe
So other generations will acquire to give out
How can we turn bees to bite to our death
When we can just fly to safety?
Be careful of the couple of destruction
Live free of their passions
Be no horse of their wins and losses
It is only by doing these
Will we safeguard the world we inherited
…for the world to come
Yes, do care and chain the couple of destruction
…to stop these dangerous trends

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. :)

A very painful truth, in a restive atmosphere of a questionable national ethos, and whose definition of peace, and what should constitute life. An intriguing gut -punch on the need for justice over the possibility of chaos and mayhem.
Since couple of religion and politics are patronised by all, let genuine LOVE be the driven force of this unavoidable relationship.
