Winds Of Revolution

Rating: 4.6
Impassioned perturbed, I look at life.
At concrete jungles and their strife.

Rainbow’s promise shredded to naught.
Pouring shards on the weary path.

Bitterness stirs the vacant heart.
Blurry gaze at the apple cart.

Smoke and smog suffuses through.
Spreading scourges of pain and flu.

The sun it hides in Stifling skies.
Truth, too, engulfed in deceitful lies.

Earth-tones once, that stood back blues.
Now like devils dance, to autumn hues.

Whence they riot, for whom they float;
on embers Innocence, as they gloat!

Sit on tombs and suppress their glee.
Interred the bones and set them free.

When roosting rooks are back at home.
To tell off giants, as pygmies, gnomes.

When shalt not stand, mounts and hills.
Only carmine ponds shall eke out thrills.

It is the constant barrage of injustices that fire the revolutionary spirit. This poem explains with passion and clarity the helplessness and hopelessness of those who finally stand up and say 'Enough! '. The rhyming couplets give a rhythmical force to your poem - like the marching of angry feet. Great work. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Bitterness stirs the vacant heart. Blurry gaze at the apple cart. Smoke and smog suffuses through. Spreading scourges of pain and flu. Profound, meaning making lines....the mood of the poem is blue.10/10
