Ode To Inner Rage

There is an anger
Deep inside me
Rage that won’t quit
Festering
Rotting
Boiling
No one will hear
No one will listen
No one will care
Once a silent ghost
That was before
She has evolved
A screaming banshee
Aching to escape
Just for a moment
No freedom today
What is freedom though
No one will hear
No one will listen
No one will care
She can rage
She can beat the wall
She can scream
Injustice!
Cry foul
Let loose the rage
Wage war on rage
No one will hear
No one will listen
No one will care

Weight of the World

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders.

I can feel Mother Earth dying.

I can feel her children dying.

Everything.

I feel it.

I go about my daily life.

I continue on.

But I see it. I FEEL IT.

I absorb it all.

We are in trouble.

We are a nation divided.

We are a world divided.

Peace and love are a distant memory.

There is no turning back now.

Not for you.

Not for me.

No soul is safe.

We Earthlings, as fragile as we are, are doomed.

Now is the time to love yourself.

But before that, love others.

We are faulty.

We are broken.

We are screwed.

Let’s try to go out with grace and dignity.
