ROCKS are not spared
to the Self that’s left
jabbed and nabbed by
Conflict brings forth
gagged by seven million voices
flattened, lost and deprived of air
til suffocation numbs the soul-starved
with the dimensional food severed by the unquenchable water saturated with rock salt. We are dying..
WORDS uttered in run on sentences–
tormenting the prisoner within the hallowed, thorns disguised as meek flowers wrapping the prison cell where demons creep in every corner like venomous leeches gliding over rotten rib marrows and rancid tendons murdering halcyon breaths. We are doomed.
like cannibals grudgingly feasted on civilians til air becomes flare and clouds become fire devoured every being left for slander, for cyber-bullying and rape and murder –Humans are no less than the animals abandoned to die in the arms of these paid mercenaries.
Listen–the Earth is talking.
Look– Light is crippled but still fighting.
Stop– God wants to show you something.
we hear words but not music.
we listen to religious preaching but not to true spirituality
We abandon love and welcome sickness
We read poetry without the heart
We speak in tongues but deaf-mute of flirtatious overtones cultivated by this humanity
We break promises and expect trust
We nurture hate and we denigrate
We cry for pain but we don’t seek help
We want instant life, jobs and fortune but, we procrastinate.
Always segragated; labelled by skin, by intellect and by one’s philosophy
We shout for freedom but we have not freed our prejudices, caprices and pride
So obtuse this paradox of this human life in this inhumane world.
Yet a lot still lust for blood
for scorched corpses
can never understand…
each other’s strife and discord.
