Look to the Horizon

Black night when souls
Fall beyond the horizon
Chains crash like dark waves
Against the shore
Birds, pecking on glass
Glass breaking
Flesh torn
Pierced through to the heart
Is this the sound of war?
The sound of sorrow?
Hot tears like desert rain
Taking life back to where it came
Human dust fills the air
Life is futile
Time consists of silence
The living weep
All in vain…

The Sunday Whirl ~ Wordle 460 #Poetry


What is it good for?

History speaks of war
Souls lost to man’s envy
Rights demanded for this and that
With no platform
The desperate, the outnumbered
The small voices never heard
Dismaying, forcing me to pray
Words feathered into dust
Hope jeopardised by the threat
Of history repeating itself
Unless we put a stop to it now…
