Weeping Willow

I cannot
strength is gone
laughter is done
spotlight is out
fading to darkness
it has all been stolen.
denial no more
for seeing atrocities
own back yard
it is time
blinders must be peeled.
children wail
fires roar
reaches over
no longer can be contained.
Voices raised
roaring displeasure
those few who try to rip asunder.
Black days are coming
no way to stop the horde
foot on the neck
thy time…..
is done.

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. It is more anger and frustration for the situation and the abuse of power that is seen over and over again without any change. It must happen now or it will become a powder keg one match off of blowing. 🙂
