Let There Be Light…

Darkness, in this world, I saw,
Where can be justice, when there is no law?
Death, pain, misery and crime,
No light could I see this time.

Human heads, by my feet they lay,
Wherever I walked, blood in my way,
I could see no evil, in their face then,
In death, the good and the evil are even.

I saw a mother, for her child, weep,
Her cries of anguish, did hit my heart deep,
An innocent life, taken, by a war again,
I could see no light, I felt only pain.

A smile, in a moment, turned to tears,
In a blink of an eye, I lost my dear,
Speeding death, took her away from me,
No one heard my cries, as I held her close to me.

No light could I see, just unending darkness,
If the world had ended, I could not have cared less,
Yet somewhere within, a little hope I felt,
I did not know why, as by her side I knelt.

It then dawned on me, how the light to see,
Only I can find the light, which is always within me.
Fight with words not
weapons, I feel this way,
Why take a precious life, for you to have your say?

Spread a smile, my friend, not a tear,
Give a ray of hope, my friend, not fear,
If you don’t believe in law, what justice can you get?
Your punishment is what your crime does beget.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  4. I can understand how difficult it is to rhyme lines because I write ‘sing-songy’ poetry too. This particular poem does have a singing quality in it but the undercurrent of pathos that echoes throughout the poem is just right for the topic chosen. You write beautifully! Keep up the good work!
