Dreamers Matter - Poem by Sona Wilae

Mangled swollen skins arrive
bleeding bitter dark prayers;
loathsome chants of naysayers
detached dreams dying alive

Cross wrath borders seething gold
seek anchor, desert heat fumes
disgusted skeletal tombs
foreign bloodline wealth resold

Fortune steps circling schools
bouncing life, twirling fair hair
speaking foreign tongues of flair
bright dreamers stunned by dark rules

Come seek lands built on distrust
Come expecting hued disgust
Seek out peace, as we all must
Seek justice from dawn to dusk.

Topic(s) of this poem: immigrant, immigration

Form: Chain Verse


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Our Dreamers matter to the peaceful hearts of this nation so divided. This land was built of the backs of immigrants...go figure

    Everyday the world is becoming more painful, more irritating, and more frightening. Political and economical factors force us to migrate to another place with a lot of dreams in our eyes, but everywhere immigrants are disliked and treated as a second class humans. (Report)Reply

    I like the concept of the poem along with its rhyming. We need such dreamers who can fight evil forces and work for the emancipation of one and all. Thanks. I quote:
    Seek out peace, as we all must
    Seek justice from dawn to dusk.

    Composition is beautiful as a verse! But difficult to decipher exactly! How can dreams be possible in a tyrannt's rule? So, all dreamers will die in such an harsh situation in life! (Report)Reply

    Exactly Ramesh...As a concerned citizen, I will continue to fight alongside humanity to provoke justice. #ALLLIVESMATTER
