No More

In our dreams

an eagle screams.

And retribution comes.

It sweeps the land

with a generous hand.

In our dreams

an eagle screams

and shatters all the hate.

No more rape.

No more gangs.

No genocide,

No suicide.

No toxic spills

or toxic pills

no chemical rain

or self inflicted pain.

In our dreams

an eagle screams

and we dance to the same drum beat

Those who would eat

while others starve at their feet

would choke on the bones they suck dry.

Those who cause injury, misery, war

would fall into ashes and even the score.

The cries of the oppressed hushed to silence.

No more children lost to the obsession of violence.

No more men who can’t stand to look at each other.

No more stories that end with a heart broken mother.

  2. Sadly, everything that’s mentioned in this write happens everyday… heartbreaking… it’s hard not to lose faith in humans at times… really is… powerful piece of poetry here.
