Mother Goddess

Ire
rising
pain
engorged
filling all aspects
tears
never ending
stand upon the precipice
looking down
vertigo
buffeted with wind currents
let go.
Rage
building
watching
flailing
mankind
destroying
razing
heart breaking
world being……
lands sere
rivers rise
death no longer creeps
full onslaught
hidden in plain sight.
We are lost.
Time has come
reduced to these seconds
choices must be made
fight
or complacent in silence
my heart hurts
like an ostrich
it is easier to bury my head
ignore the truths that are coming
even as the portends
dance before my face.
I have fallen.
I have betrayed.
I have heard her screams
as Mother Earth
tears asunder
lashing with wind
pouring rain
her message to me
not the same
as her message for you.
Hear her
heed her
or time shall come
all will be lost.

Sweet Lies

This poem was prompted by ‘Mother’ written by EntangleDesigns.
Fairy tales
maternal influence
dies
leaving sullen daughter
for blighted step-mother to abuse.
What if
step-mother is not needed
abuse rains down
from one who is suppose to love
to teach
to protect
is the one who is cruel
who shatters innocence
secret demands.
Scarlet scars
ribboned
thin white slices
hidden
tears squalled
bitten lip
never give in
never give satisfaction.
Today
this day
to celebrate
embracing
celebrated cheer
I could not hate more.
You broke me
you sold me
you stole my childhood dear
why ever did you become a mom
when you despised me so much?
