LOCKED SELVES

There are people who have high walls around them
With tight security
Needing to check every detail
…before opening themselves up
But end up allowing only the worst of beings
…to enter into their territories
Shutting their best bets out
I wonder why!
I wonder why!

II
There are some people who live like monsters
Always roaring and gnashing their teeth
To scar or emit hatred
But still end up attracting the best of hearts
To their territories
I wonder why!
I wonder why!

III
Still there are people who will do it all
But never get a soul around
Even when they’ve found themselves
And need others to give themselves to
I wonder why!
I wonder why!

IV
I wonder why life’s path remains unclear
Fogged by hidden happenings
…harping heckles and humping hurts
…by seconds
The creator must be an existence unfair
To match unmatchables
And single the lonely out
…for a one soul walk
…into eternity

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. :)
