Quiet Contemplation

Time has come
need to retreat from this world
from the terror
the pain
the abuse of sensibilities
quiet contemplation
that is what is needed.
War rages
around the street corner
gangsters in colors
children with guns
no future
other than death
or a lifetime in a jail cell.
War rages
discrimination
hatred
bred with violence
destroying lives
destroying people
who have never harmed another.
Abuse of power
rampant
in countries once thought great
now using tactics of gorilla warfare
to get what they want.
Corruption
seamed throughout
one hand washes the other
while money is handed about.
Tears fall
parched earth
searing sun
withdraw from the evils
the degeneration
nothing can be done
to cease the collapse
the ruination
of what once was.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.

      1. No not at all. All good. I am exhausted today. We got slammed at work. Had my head not been screwed on tight we would have had a 3 Stooges type scenerio where I was kicking and chasing my head all over to try and catch it.
