AS LIFE TEACHES

It seems like only yesterday
When my legs stood on heels to parade me around
Now I look like a thing to decay
An empty tin which weakness has found

II
In my mind, I’ve gone all round
As my legs use their heels to have their say
But the reality still stands that mortality now has me bound
For a future promising decay

III
Who are humans that we make many a prideful sound?
What are humans that our egos crown our say?
Where are humans that we do eachother bind?
Who are humans that we act like we own the day?

IV
This temporary state has tutored my fate
If I see tomorrow, I’ll hold my slate
And write my lessons to avoid the bait
Of living like a can-beat-fate
So as to erase regrets before I’m late

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. :)
