OVERSMOKE WEED

Oversmoke weed
…and plant its seeds
And they will grow as fire to consume your roots

II
Sniff cocaine
…and stack its needs
And they will turn vampires
…to collapse your bones

III
Drink alcohol excessively
…in the drum of your heart
And they’ll overflow like waterfalls
…to drown your soul

IV
Whatever attitudinal abuse you plant
…no matter how relieving
Has its inherent evils which will grow its devils
…to chase you like weevils
So as you in that high chairs swivel
Think of the future level by level
None lives long to thank fearsome narcotics
…pumped for stokes
They all drink from the blood of their saliva
…which bite their blood to unbleed with pain
…until they gain the level of insanity and cease to be
So smoke abundance weed to hunt your soul
Sniff cocaine to poisonously powder your organs
…be an overbearing alcoholic to change your gait into a wavering flag
They are paths you surely can choose
…if you can honour their tragic influences

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. :)

Beautifully brewed poetic piece with subtle, stern caution against those pleasurable poisons, capable of engulfing like the hungry flames of fuel fire.

The piece could certainly not be inconsequential. Kudos!
