A NEED TO BE HEARTLESS By World Barnabas

Written by Editor

After my discovery in the third planet to the earth
Then I began to see things unusual
And many thoughts troubled my heart
And those things that are hidden become visual.

It was then I knew that there is a need to be heartless
Because there is one enemy you cannot overcome
And that will make you to be fearless
Like the pursue of bald-eagle in the compound
When all the tenants are around.

Human being tends to be warm-hearted
But the badass experience of life
Will make one to be non-compos-mentis
And that will make you to be cold –hearted
And your behavior will now be non-conformist.

There is a need to be aware of the fact
That those who claim to live by the truth of the past
Live in danger and die without the trail of a murderer
But those who discharge their responsibilities in lie and deceit
Live longer and are accepted by all and sundry.

My heart has groan in pain like the horning of the rail
And now mature enough to adapt to the dictate of the way
Where forgiveness is a sin and mercy is a taboo
And those who are fools before are now wise
Those who at peace before fight
All in the name of a need to be heartless.
