Life's Dust - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Many major arteries in life's circles are clogged as they reach endlessly for the sky - silently, furtively, closing avenues of perspective reliance.
Altogether finalizing performances of others with jealousy and greed.
Taking away livelihoods of people with scant concern for their future
Choking lifeblood of many beings, sacrificing none of their own for worldly obligations and duties, burying carcasses of would-be caring, human individuals.
Starving many to feed their own egos, creating a make-believe sense of security.
Fabricating life as they wish, breaking spirits, hopes and dreams for future generations.
Leaving debris of their telltale associations like dust on the streets of hell.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Inspired by crooked, corrupt politicians, not caring who gets hurt by their policies, laws, judgments, etc. - doing what they want and lining their own pockets. Trying to hide what they're doing, but there's always ways we can tell by the debris they leave behind. i.e. homeless and disabled people, elderly, children being abused, newborns being killed, joblessness, domestic violence caused by not enough money to take care of families, illegals running rampant taking benefits that belong to citizens, drug and alcohol addictions by those who can't deal with their lives anymore, middle class citizens giving up. It all stems from our government thinking only of itself and leaving ordinary people out of their equations.
