Agitator for Disharmony

I am watching
destruction of a world
I thought
indestructible.
Fires roar in the night
cities consumed
rage
incoherent
no longer able to avoid.
I am watching
leaders fail
desperate to fulfill lies
tear at truth
deny responsibility
for the death of all.
Could have been avoided
if faced sooner
yet still
doubt reigns
amongst the truth nayers.
Fiction
not fact
despite what is shown 24/7
on every news channel.
I am watching.
I am bleeding.
Tears wave my sight.
There is something backward
with the joy that you feel
shouting for more murder
for more beatings
for more violence
than for joining
an ever growing roar
for peace.

Stormed Fate

Sea storms
water raging
broiling with cold
lightening crackles across the sky
thunder roars
clapping
breaking over the water
reverberating
felt through to my core.
Tumultuous
waves crash
crackle
tossing me around.
I am lost
within the black depths
no sunlight reaching
I am stagnating
help me please.
Straining
I swim for the surface
ignoring
words
wailing
pain
fear
I will survive
I swear I will get there.
I have gone backward
in a time when I was meant to go forward
vicious slurs
nasty gossip
everyone seems to know
more about me than I do.
I once broke free
stood tall
claimed my past
no longer allowing it to define me.
Yet…..
I find myself
battling the same demons
battling the same nightmares
screaming in silence
mouth rent open
no one will help me
no one will save me.
Sink slowly…..
oblivion.
I give up.
There is no saving. 
There is no savior.
There is nothing.
I am gone.
Good bye.
