The Second Coming - Poem by Tony Adah
I will not run
For no one pursues
Even if some heels pound behind me
I will take the roadside and go my own way
In my toils, converse with nature
And reap from my ploughshares that
Which nature endows.
I will walk with the feet of justice
And stir its dust in a whirlwind
That devours injustice after my heels
I will climb the hills of knowledge
And discern that which is right
From that which is wrong.
I will wring all my inequities
And pour them into the sea of forgiveness
Upon the knoll of my wrongdoings
I will announce with a klaxon of sobriety
And tell the son to tell the father
To bring nothing but justice to the world
And in his second coming
Nothing but peace to the world.
