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.

    I will walk the feet 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- - - - -The poet is a seeker of true knowledge which will enable him to discern between right and wrong, which will wring out inequities, fill with forgiveness, .. bring justice and peace to this world..
