Many times,
I chose tears,
As the only way,
To express my feeling,
When the wickedness,
In the world emerges,
But I’ll wipe tears away,
For expression is fleeting.

If sorrow had a head,
I mean just one,
I will be sworn,
To find a way for it to be severed.

If bad men had one heart,
I know they are heartless,
I would try to puncture it,
I won’t employ cupid,
Am not that stupid.

If liars had one mouth,
I know we call the double mouthed,
I would visit the gravest blacksmith,
Ask uncle Smith for the money,
Make the largest lock,
And all their lies I’ll block.

If injustice was human,
I would do things inhumane,
To ensure I bring him to justice,
Am not talking of the clothed justice,
Sitting behind a table,
With pocket full of money in Bundle.

If I could,
I would,
But I can’t,
My voice don’t count,
So after this I post,
I go to my post,
Shed some tears,
Inflate my fears,
For the future,
Read a scripture,
Draw hope from Revelation,
About when God will move into action,
Till then I’ll sigh and groan,
Because wickedness have grown,
The weed we never planted has grown,
I am you,
You are me,
We are us,
It looks like a lost cause,
But who knows?
Tomorrow is still there,
If now is not here.
