“TO MUCH VIOLENCE” POEM—-“REMINDER”


 

“Reminder”

Yet another reminder,

Oh No!

Fallen!

Moments surreal, time stood still.

Pondering! Stunned! Locomotion!

Mind in vague trance time,

Cartilage now begins to lye,

Lifeless osseous matter transpired,

Obsolescence,

Expired,

Cessation,

Souls flying all at once to the sky,

Violence, annihilation is here,

Tragedy not scarce,

Tragedy not rare,

Death too now here,

Still dismayed today,

Gone away,

Suddenly,

Alarm,

Tumultuous travesty,

Far gone,

No win,

No win again,

Reminder of kinder,

Reminder of care,

Your still here,

Not gone, not gone,

By the grace of God,

Meditation and prayer,

Souls flew away while bodies lied

motionless as they fell,

Fly away beyond the clouds,

Gone away, gone away now,

Our town of tears applicable here,

Smiles turned upside down,

Inconsolable hours,

Flowers to lie,

Teddy Bears and candles on display,

Cards with expressions and posters

beside each other lay,

Hugs for pain,

Now the blame,

No words alleviate grief,

Now time stands still before it fly’s

with cries,

Empathy,

Sympathy,

Far better to care,

Acceptance,

Perhaps passion,

Too late,

Consequences of hate,

Perpetuated state of hate,

Avoidable fate,

Now a soul is through the never to return gates,

Never to return gates await,

Frigid, bleak state,

At best the rest,

Left with recoiling memories of pleasant,

special occasions all now cherishing,

Bitter sweet,

Bitter sweet feelings now you keep as you weep,

Reminder to love,

Reminder to care,

Empathy,

Sympathy,

Acceptance,

Respect,

Your still here, not gone,

Not gone,

Reminder,

Reminder,

Reminder to read God’s word, obey it, love and care.
