At The Gateway Of Tomorrow

Standing at the gateway of tomorrow and contemplating
Contemplating the heinous crimes against humanity
Crimes against humanity bereaving the world of her soul
Her soul lost in the dusk of yesterday
In the dusk of yesterday and the night of the day before
The day before where division has stripped backs raw
Backs raw and the hides torn apart
Torn apart bleeding rivers of tears
Rivers of tears burning from the heart

And yet in the embers of those flames why have we not learnt
Not learnt the lessons of yesterday
Yesterday and vanquished humanity where tomorrow’s sun dims
Tomorrow’s sun dims and cannot rise above the horizon
The horizon where hope lies abandoned by the deeds of people
The deeds of people that still wound the planet and suffocate
Suffocate her breath, deprive her people tomorrow
Tomorrow slain by today and yesterday
Standing at the gateway of tomorrow and contemplating

Persecution

Living under clouds so grey
Hounded, sought out every day
Oppressed, harassed and haunted too
Victimised by vicious few
Bullies rife that persecute
Their words and actions bullets shoot
For by the deeds of tyranny
Free speech suppressed kills liberty

Persecution – devil’s scorn
Hands of torture never mourn
Or care for how they hound and hunt
Their plague strikes down, their malice blunt
And lives destroyed; taken too soon
Sun stifled by the bloody moon
That comes in stealth with heartless strife
And suffocates to end all life

 

Sacrificial Lamb

Sacrificial lamb
Of society
Delivered up for turning from
A mob mentality
Cruelly slaughtered on the table
For nothing other than
Existing in the out-group when
The in-group is a clan

Sacrificial Lamb
Of society
Enslaved by academic spat
That stifles purity
Bound up in chains of tyranny
With lies that pierce the heart
Gagged, persecuted, lashed and beat
Destroyed and torn apart

Sacrificial Lamb
Of society
Though hung and drawn and quartered still
Stands up for liberty
And finds the will to vindicate
Oppressors’ acts and deeds
In truth releasing forgiveness
However much she bleeds
