HOMOSTAFFALOSES

There are times when we refuse
…to drain our toxics into a refuse
There are times when our content
…do not make us content
There are times when we can’t bank
…our hope on our bank
There are times, when our soles
…taking us places, house not our souls
Those times pierce their bows
…in our shameful bows

II
There are times when our mate
…don’t our fate mate
There are times when our state
…is made worse by the state
There are times when our cords
…hurt from love’s chords
There are times when our boards
…come not on our thought boards
Those times do make bare
…what we can really bear

III
There are times when we do not drink
…our customized drink
There are times when our fans
…do not give us fans
There are times when fear does not make us gun
…for our gun
There are times when we do not hear
…what is happening in our here
There are times when many a man
…can never be able to man
There are times a hurting bee
…won’t let a worried head be

IV
But learning through each day’s lesson
…must help our burdens lessen
Sometimes heads need to trash a lie
…before bodies can restfully lie
Sometimes we need to give a piece
…in order to maintain peace
Sometimes, just sometimes, we need to strike a harmonious match
…before we can make a match
So always be sure to explain what you mean
…so as not to come across as mean
Because when life tells us to say no
We will always, always know

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. :)
