Still on your knees eh

Contributed by drone on Tuesday, 29th August 2017 @ 04:54:38 AM in AEST
Topic: political

One cannot walk
this path
that shines
this path
that has been
through the concrete jungles
of lies and deceit
through the rotting smell
of corruption and greed
where there are people
who lurk within
who have nothing
but stunted twisted
seedless thoughts
on the need
to keep you
and your children
on your knees
so they can feed
on your blood
and tears

One cannot walk
upon this path
that has been
through the concrete jungle
of lies and deceit
this path
that now shines
though the falling mist
of broken tears
that lay gently
upon the scattered bones
of those
who stood their ground
who held
their head up high
and carved this path
though the jungle of lies
trying all alone
to put things right
for the young
for those
who have yet to arrive

One cannot
walk this path
that has been carved
though this concrete jungle
of lies and deceit
though the rotting smell
of corruption and greed
one cannot join
those who are left
who stubbornly continue
to walk
this lonely path
that has been carved
by those who came
before them
who got off their knees
to carve this path
to help the kids

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
