Poetry Today

I am still hopeful….

I am still hopeful, deep down in the silence

Beneath the darkness Aflame still burns

I’ve seen too much

I’ve bear too much

I’ve prayed too much

To give in now

I’m painting a rainbow

Over my scars

I’m washing the ugliness

From my tongue

I am speaking to the mountain

And the walls and the empty spaces

Receptive souls will hear

The broken hearted will hear

Grieving families will hear

The children will hear

The confused and disillusion will hear

They will come

They will listen

For in our bellies

Rooted deep we have an innate

Desire to see change

To feel hopeful

So today,

Come as you are

Hear my voice

Let change begin with you and me

One voice

One word

Softly spoken

Are you listening©
