Poem: Cleansing Waves

Cleansing Waves

sunshine ocean

 

The waves wash; over me
I can feel the past deeds
and I am cleansed

With each surge; my birth
paper chains hold no longer
and I am cleansed

Life fleeting; too short
these moments only matter
while I am cleansed

Poem: Palestine Hero

Palestine Hero is a poem about a boy who grows up with hatred and seeking revenge for his sister and mothers death.  This poem is inspired by the events of Israel against the Palestinians but is not mean’t to judge and merely to capture the mindset of a boy who sees his family suffer in retaliation.  Children do not understand who started and who strikes back, they only know the loss and death of loved ones and fill with anger and hatred toward those who inflict that pain and loss.

Palestine Hero

I woke up today
sounds of screaming
echoing in the dust
and my mother lying
broken on the floor
like a fallen shield
over my sisters corpse
Barely ten this year
I already knew
the devil himself
saw his mark
in lifeless eyes
and crumbling walls
in a desperate city

like mockeries
warning leaflets flew
escape the slaughter
like there was a choice
when fathers found me
and I opened my eyes
no tears were shed

I remember that day
and my prayers come
with strength in numbers
chest strapped in plastic
a few devils to repay
my sister and mother
waiting now in heaven

SHADOWS

a guest poem by Cheryl Scheffer Nilar

Drag me down
to the depths of your soul;

Let me breathe
and set myself free.

The pain of despair
I have known;
Comes beating in
like a heart laid bare
in winters chill.

Walk away from shadows
that lie in your path;
What matters is truth
that speaks from the heart.

Nothing Lasts Forever

a guest poem by Cheryl Scheffer Nilar

Miles and miles of white-hot sand,
my bare feet tingle;
as crashing waves break away,
my feet dug deep in wet sand.

Oceans roll and roar in endless waves;
glaring visions of a distant summer haze.
Golden glints beckon me on;
like the melodious rhythm of a summer song
To its echoing beat I stroll along.

As summer sun begins to fade.
Reminiscing; here’s where I belong.
Where does a brightly painted sky go
as deepening shadows cast moons glow.

Wintry winds have blown away,
softly leaves have kissed Earth’s Soul
From russet red to golden mists
Dusk has turned to dawn once more.

Another place another time
If I held autumn in my gaze;
Let autumn leaves have their way

Colors bold, I stand and stare
Too soon trees stand stark and bare.

Seasons come and seasons go
Nothing Lasts
Forever
If rain falls incessantly
Rainbows would cry a river.

Look at you
standing there
icon in a room
without a care

A crowd adoring
without a clue
about the pain
living in you

They may smile
all make nice
but each day
a roll of dice

Today is gold
instead of gray
tomorrow uncertain
this is the way

Such is life
in a dual mind
tomorrow a monster
but today I am kind

-Poem by Justin Germino
