Shades of red cover their eyes
The world alit in fire
Words unspoken
…and promises broken
Enraged against their lies.

Shades of gray are all about
Epidemic of apathy
Flesh has tainted
…and faces are painted
The last of the devout

Shades of green do dwell inside
Envious is the soul
Spirit jaded
…and jealousy sated
Compassion for their pride.

  1. Reblogged this on Ninefold Evolution and commented:

    Though this isn’t a light-hearted poem I am reblogging because I want to call attention to what is going on in the world today. I have other light-hearted work I’ll be writing today.

    Not light hearted but understand why you would re-blog. Only the truly self-focussed or spiritually blind cannot see what is occurring and accurately judge it for what it is. Deception is blackest evil cloaked in a light of acceptability. Any one who believes that sacrificing life (even their own) will gain them a place in some heavenly realm has to be deceived. Life itself is a force and human life is sacred. (at least that is from my perspective of seeing this life in all its brokenness and despair). Keep writing. Keep feeling.
