Poetry Corner: Want

Some years ago, before any idea for a full length books(s) entered my head, I wrote some poetry. This is one of them. I wrote it in the wake of so much tragedy around the world.

Light is dimming,
consciences slimming
nights are winning

it will never stop.

Wanting,
needing,
screaming for

our hearts to make it stop.

Leaders lying
children crying
in fields

oh, when will ever it stop?

Hurting,
awaiting,
searching for

a way to make it stop!

Desiring,
pleading,
asking for

this madness all to stop!

Killing goes on,
hearts grow harder
minds go numb

because it doesn’t stop!

Others taking,
their lives!
for a chance to make it end…

…because it’s near. My ear doth hear.

Mine eyes begin to see.

It will never…

oh! won’t it ever?

Please Come make it

S  T  O  P.

Stop the bullying. Stop the bigotry. Stop your radicalism. Stop the bible-thumping. Stop the hurt. STOP.
