River


River runs red
eyes see through
a candlelight view
mind to the ledge

The lips speaks with contradictions
the eyes don't lie so I converse with her
she shuts me out, word of mouth
they follow faceless devils
she opens up and the truth is shown

Faceless evil
crowded judgments
silence lethal

Full moon transformation
cry wolf
midnight whispers words of uncertainty

Clouds of disturbance
lies I see through crowded figures
faceless have I become
public enemy number one
punishment served in little doses
an end I create a new reality
a fallen soldier no longer
a new society, my mind
uncompromised

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
