Dark Days - Poem by Omar Ahmed

life is a full of sight
thing become strange
in one way or the other
peace and prosperity
belongs to nations
which persists
but a nation
with ruthless leader
who drinks blood in standing
who also is bad boy breaking
all the rules
with constituency
who follows
and looks after
unthinkable things in life

life aint no crystal stairs
in a nation where teens
have shotguns
who don't fear
protokol and guidelines

life ain't no crystal stairs
in a nation where malitias
rules its land

    Well spoken and with expanding evidence of mental instability! Will Dark Days become lightened by awakening awareness? (Report)Reply
