A Cry For My People

Rating: 5.0

A people are born.
Born to be vast.
It's sheer non-sense as I speak because it feels we should run.
Making us think we are the last.

The liquid gold of my land is snatched upon by the thieves.
They do this to elevate their wealth.
I laugh at them with anger because its mischief.
I know what the heroes of my land felt.

They economy of the thieves sag.

The people of my land are cold. Cold enough that some are sold. I am one of the very few who are bold. A young poet I need to be told. Told the truth about ages of our old. My people look with your mind thinking and not chasing gold. Freedom doesn't come with you arms fold. What an excellent composition. Wishing you to be bold and more bold but your each and every word must be more cold than that of ice. Thanks for sharing. Stay blessed. Keep writing. Full marks.
