River - Poem by Kelvin Owusu

River runs red
eyes see through
a candlelight view
mind to the ledge

The lips speaks with contradictions
the eyes don't lie so I converse with her
she shuts me out, word of mouth
they follow faceless devils
she opens up and the truth is shown

Faceless evil
crowded judgments
silence lethal

Full moon transformation
cry wolf
midnight whispers words of uncertainty

Clouds of disturbance
lies I see through crowded figures
faceless have I become
public enemy number one
punishment served in little doses
an end I create a new reality
a fallen soldier no longer
a new society, my mind

Poet's Notes about The Poem

the idea for this piece came from reading (By Unwritten Soul written by Midnights Voice) . this poem isn't based on his piece but it gave me the idea to write mine. all Respects goes to Unwritten Soul, his poems are a work of art,
a great poet in his own right.

    Majority might be wrong... the enemy hunted might be the one who have the sense to wake up and say his mind. Well done. (Report) Reply
