DEAR DEAD ROBBER

Dear death robber
As you journey through crude beatings
…torture and a butchering to death town
Please do use the fire of hell
To build yourself anew
If you dream of coming back to life

II
I don’t know who will greet you
…there and turn you round{ to look
…at you and proclaim you torn
…destroyed and
….worn
But I hope you create no but
To make an excuse for not dying happy
Because you made choices to
Be what you wanted to be
And knew your direction would lead pool to a dying
On risks of hitting on
And being hit on even in your
…swift and chosen battlefield

III
Do cast a glance at your mother
And spare a thought to your father
Their shame deserve your second coming
…with you tamed by good deeds
…a giving heart
…and a loving soul
Please come back whole
With an understanding of your situation
To help others outlive same
So they end up changed rather than deranged

IV
You saw how policemen threw you like a garbage
Onto their bus after finding you in the Teak Groove
Knowing some of those you robbed
Happened to have you mobbed?
They oh so cringed rather than getting worried
…even though your loved ones sobbed
They looked at you
Angry that your previous scars
…got you not a change of heart
They also looked relieved that the stress you pose
…has ended for them
Life should be better after a worse
So do come back anew
From the cat-like-paws you wielded and we knew, to live with a clean heart

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. :)
