Power Will Start Falling - Poem by Tamara Robalo

Tears fell forever before
Mirrors of death in thousands of wars
Witnesses of life in our brightest moments
Now, fall like simple drops of rain,
Healing the rage, feeding the drain
Of our buried life instead

Tears turn to lies

Our cries never came for life
And our dreams fade out with time
Our heroes are dead bodies or souls
However we cannot feel more alive

Heroes become ghosts

We trade hope for certainty
We shut our mouth to belong
Let our silence be the riot
Let it unfold what words were hiding

Words come unnecessary

We waited to come home till the runrise
Now, we're left behind
We used to fear the blinding light
Now, we're coming out of the dark

The dark was the refugy

Humans?
They're beautiful dread souls
Existing fo us
Letting us join the masses club
Giving us a shot to be someone
Teaching us how to die (just) inside

Souls get sillent

They're nothing new
Conquering your dreams before you heard a thing
Making us slaves of our own instinct

They´re the men who rule our world


You're the unknown soldier

    A well articulated piece of poetry insightfully penned in poetic diction with conviction. A good depiction of the enslavement of masses by many governments around the globe with a clarion call for the oppressed to rise to the occasion. Thanks for sharing Tamara. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    P: S:

    ”We waited to come home till the runrise
    Now, we're left behind
    We used to fear the blinding light
    Now, we're coming out of the dark”

    I assume it should be 'sunrise' not 'runrise', isn't it? ? You can fix the typo

    Cheers :)
