NOBLESSE OBLIGE

The sky feeds the earth rains, suns and moons
To help it fertilize and light up
…among other things
Sucking up some of its heat
For it hovers above
And towers in wealth
So should the world’s wealthy

II
Abundance floods in hoarding
…so calls for sharing
Sharing, like a smiling contagion
…shows a care in humanity
…that all good gods push
And the omnipotent God rewards for
So show some noblesse oblige this season
To help others join your laughter with smiles
As your sympathy shatters their pity
And your kindness lights hope
…to help others cope

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. :)
