Poem Entries from September 25-November 30

Here is the second poem entry by one of our aspiring poets out there.

I CRY


I cry for those
who find it so… so… hard to cry…
their faces now
a land that knows but drought
cracked… dry… puzzle like furrow…
hemmed in by the o… so… ugly
touch of prejudice
the sly and whispered
words of prejudice
and in so… so… many cases now…
supplanted by its more hideous hybrid…
racism…


so I cry for those
who find it so… so… hard to cry…


I cry even for those
who perpetrate this evil upon the land
their faces radiating
a snarl of rabid fear
corroding the supple minds of the young
who now wanders aimlessly…
hemmed in by a blindness
that knows no light…
a heart that knows no warmth…
what can be done
when it is leaders
who stroke the fires of hate…
and makes something
as innocent as colour… a crime…


so I cry even more for those
who perpetrate this… this… evil upon the land

That was a moving poem moribascorner. I agree with your idea and feel sympathy towards those people. There’s always another side of every story. We don’t know how those kinds of people ended up doing the wrong things, so we can’t judge them; instead, we can just cry for them.

Thank you so much for that marvelous piece. I really like it.
