The World Is Not Enough - Poem by Lara W.A

Even if you lock me in a cell,
Build a fortress to blind my sight,
Protect my body with shields
To keep me safe from threats,

Tie me to a pole and try your best
To detach me from the outside world,
Hide the newspapers,
And forbid me to watch the prime news;

I would still feel,
I would still know.
The bees and the birds will report to me,
From their hasty chatterings and buzzings,
I can tell:

The world isn’t safe tonight;
Another man murdered,
Another border trespassed,
Another kid is losing faith tonight…

    Well it's painful, but your expression, as usual is so sharp!
    (I hope you don't mind my commenting so often on your poems. I can stop awhile, if it makes you at all uncomfortable. I'm sort of a cheerleader, but only because I feel you're such a good writer!)
