YOU SAVIOUR’S MESSENGERS

I don’t need a saviour’s messenger to drive me to God
I don’t need a worrying human to act all bored
I don’t need the threats of hell and fire
I certainly won’t live in your desire

II
I don’t need to wear the shoes of your beliefs
I don’t have to be the opponent of your beliefs
I don’t need to fall in line with your thoughts
In order to get to a God like your caught

III
For I am a thinking being with working mind
I am a living being with a heart of a kind
I am a spirited soul who feels so whole
So hunt me not with your deceptive bowl

IV
I respect that you’ve a way to your God
Why don’t you see me as a human with a way to her God?
I respect that you love to live pious through strife
Why don’t you accept that I have a way to live my life?

V
You howl and bellow, hoping I will mellow
You cry in sorrow, hoping to change my tomorrow
You try persuasion with invasion, hoping to change my situation
You pray like a fetish and you say you’re an angel, hoping to push your delusion

VI
But you can’t afford to buy me with tricks
You can’t even try to use me as one of your bricks
To buy you a kingdom which may not exist
You can’t have my honour, I will you resist

VII
So if I were you, I’ll channel my energy into my paradise
Thinking through how I’ll score high with my religious dice
In order to live above a heaven like an angel
Overseeing all the angles

VIII
This here me will be me today
This here me will be me tomorrow
This here me has no time for your many say
This here me is here to stay like me

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. :)
