AN UNHEALABLE ANARCHY

Once upon a time, aboa Ntatia
Ministered its faith to mmoatia
And asked him to believe in the god of Water
As it can wash all creation off the surface of the earth
Mmoatia told Ntatia to change its belief and believe in the god of Wind
As it can blow all living things to their death
Gyata who was listening told them to change their beliefs as the god of Fire is to be feared
He added that just being near it can burn the furs off living things
…and render them wounded
But Patuo, who was in a safe tree, told them the god of Sun is rather the one to be feared
…as it can blind all eyes if it wishes to
…and cause dehydration to bodies with its heat
Most of the animals were torn between these gods
And so started bickering

II
Soon the bickering turned into silent ɔtan
As all of them decided to give utter importance to their faith’s ɛban
As they all felt they had seen the ɛhan
But the silent hatred soon turned into loud wars
Wars which ended many on death’s floors
Tried as the Omnipotent God of Nature did to let them see
…that their gods were all created by Him
The animals refused to heed and let peace be
And so they forced God’s light to dim
As they followed their paths to animosity
Which still reigns today,l in the animal kingdom with its unhealable anarchy

Thank you all for following amoafowaa.com. Due to some personal reasons, I am taking the rest of December off. Hoping to catch up after the holidays. Have a December to Remember in great strides.

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. :)
