366 Poems: November 7th, 2016

The Voiceless

A voice in my head screams in fright:

“Please don’t let the world end tonight!

Don’t let our demons see the light

of a red judgement day!”


But no, the world won’t end tonight,

yer still my faith may take its life

if a kind nation, once in sight,

now slowly fades away.


Oh please, don’t let it be that day

where hatred wins and bloodshed stays

upon the notes the anthem plays,

the words no longer true.


And they might let it end that day,

but you can love and you can pray.

In any language, any way,

our future’s up to you.

  1. While there has been a huge advantage to me being late on my poetry (I don’t have to worry so much about instant reactions to what I say) it is a bit awkward and unfortunate that I couldn’t post today’s three poems on the days that they were written. Hopefully, the time that has passed since then has given both me and my readers some perspective on recent events. I don’t always enjoy being political on this blog, as I do not want to stir up controversy on what is supposed to be a simple creative platform. But I will leave my words here, as I believe they are very important, no matter your thoughts and feelings on the election.

    I’m sure you have all heard this before, but please be respectful to my words and the words of others during this time. Some of us may be happy, while some of us may be down and afraid, but I think above all it is our duty now to fill the deep bipartisan divides of this country and begin to listen to each other, and see how we can make this country better. All of us, together.
