DISPLACEMENT: UNTITLED

UNTITLED

Politics Government Borders,

Incompetence Arrogance Gluttony.

 

The powerful draw the line;

with one’s own convenience.

Laying claims on mother earths own body,

To shed blood, steel and fire on

not only, the willing but also;

the unwilling.

 

No matter young or old,

To fall from not steel

but also,

Cold. Hot. Plague. Hunger.

 

Forced to run to live,

Some… together,
Some… alone,

To foreign lands or to sanctuary,

Through bloodied earth

or,

Littered.

 

Some to salvation,

Some into the hungry hands;

Of fallen man.

 

Into… Misery,

Into further… Pain,

Into more… Loneliness,

Into… Betrayal.

 

But,

 

Hold strong,

Continue moving,

Through the night,

Run among the beast of the hunt,

Continue running,

Across hungry eyes and scared souls,

Continue crossing,

Across plains of nothingness and dirt.

 

Continue on,

For the dawn will come again,

Upon that horizon,

Help will come.

 

So,

Run and never stop,

Run from war,

Run from death,

Run from sorrow,

Never stop.

And,

Witness a new dawn again.

  1. Hannah Greyson-Gaito says:

    I enjoy the fact that this is not in a traditional form.

    Fragments of ideas suspended with space for the reader to inhabit.
