Word of the Day Challenge #89-Untitled Poem

Stand upon the stage
hands raised
triumphant
attack
perceived enemies
while coddling
known criminals.
Destroy 
the foundation families are built upon.
Raze
history
rewritten in your own image
rewritten to eradicate
any
all
that you do not believe
that you have decided
no longer belong in the books.
I have watched
mouth tight
disgust
rage
no one doing anything
no one can
for hands are tied
minds are ruined
in-fighting begins.
A mockery you have made…..
of a once brilliant past
of those who dare to disagree
of those who challenge your mind
of those who should be protected
you use as bartering chips.
Your downfall is nigh
ignorance
astonishingly amounts of ignorance
cannot hold much longer
or can it?
We have lost the battle
it has been a long long time
the war is finally coming…..
check your facts
check your figures
you might want to make sure
you have a secure hidey-hole
We will be coming.
In the night.
You will never know.
Take back our time
eradicating you.

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. “rewritten in your own image

    rewritten to eradicate

    any

    all

    that you do not believe

    that you have decided

    no longer belong in the books.”

    Although the whole poem drips with a rage that has become all too familiar personally but these particular lines are so acutely relatable, I felt a twinge.
