AVOID IT, ENDURE IT

Written by: Kessie Justice Amenyo

AVOID IT, ENDURE IT

When problems shower,
Plethora of troubles
Having a time of their 
life
In your community-body,
Avoid them with
Your protective parts. 

For the scorch rays
And the play from 
flying birds,
Use your sun roof
To cover your head.

For flying insects,
The play from monkeys 
around
And the dirty wind 
blowing around,
Close the boot of your 
eyes
To protect it from 
blinds. 

For the thunder
Who boasts of his voice
And the play of tongues
Mingling with abusive 
words,
Close the window of 
your ear
To protect your ear 
drum.

With all these
Accumulated grievances
And your heart
Heavy with 
accumulated weights,
Let no word proceed
Out of your mouth,
But lock the bonnet
Of your mouth 
And give God the key.
