INDIRECT MURDERS

If you poison the waters
…you poison its fishes
If you cut a tree
…you kill its fruits
When you block the moon
…you darken the world of many an eye
Acts are facts whose guts
…reality can’t hide

II
If you annoy the rains
…you push its kill with flood or drought
For its anger know of only extremities
If you annoy the sun
…you cause it to burn or hide
Its anger, you know, know only extremities
If you annoy the sun
…you know they heat winds to bite
Acts are facts whose guts
…reality can’t hide

III
So act not innocent
Thinking your actions just
…when innocent targets wallow in the pain of your justifications
Oh act not wise with holy scriptures as your fixtures
Right revenge, risking lives of many a wronged
…puts you at the wrong side of fairness
We now live in a world where the innocent deserves no bullets from karma
…in connections to associations their will can’t reach
Know this, and choose forgiveness
…in your fury for vengeance

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. :)
