Sirens go off in my mind
Do I stand or jump in blind
Questions, with no answers, burn my time
I stay, overlooking the ocean
Mulling over another question
What’s the difference between an island and a prison
Like the one I see off in the distance
Not much, says my intuition
Just a matter of personal perception
Like fear behind false bravado and ammunition
An orphan asking a King for fulfillment
Forget that deaf isn’t the same as not listening
I dedicate this poem to all the innocent children that have been killed unjustly in Syria and Palestine. Our world is being ruled by leaders who claim to do the best for their people but instead do only the opposite. They hide behind false words, inaction, and a desire to help themselves.
All of us have in one way or another an impact on someone else. Don’t take this responsibility lightly. Be just to those who rely on you. Whether that is your neighbor, your son, daughter, spouse, parent, friend, dog, cat, or a tree. Every living thing deserves nothing but the best from each of us.
I would love to hear what this poem meant to you. Comment below and leave your thoughts.
