Symbol - Poem by Charlene van Eikeren

The past is the road
We’ve already traveled
The future is the path
Not yet taken.

Stormy weather and dark clouds
Have led everyone before
Some rain still follows as
Symbol of things left undone.

Sun that burns the skin
Symbols loved ones hurting.
And the wind
The symbol of truth

Hatred the symbol
The wishing for more.
Tears symbol of acceptance
And smiles symbol of happiness.

Doves’ symbol of peace
And a heart for love
Everything growing around us
A sign and symbol of new beginnings.
So how come with all of this….
There is still space for the torment
In the symbol of killing in war?
