Again

Are we seeing it again?
Eyes averred to those in need
Are we pampering the egos
That grow fat on blood and greed?
Are we seeing it again?

Are we hearing it again?
Rhetoric of wilful right
Do we count up all the cost as
Lives are shattered in the night?
Are we hearing it again?

Are we feeling it again?
Such a dread and dark despair
When we search for our heart’s allies
We are left so wanting there
Are we feeling it again?

Are we knowing it again?
Cycles form and darkness grows
We are victims of our hatred
Thus the wheel of fate bestows
Are we knowing it again?

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. Will we fight it again?
    The selfishness of greed
    You bet we will to battle go
    To defend all those in need
    Will we fight it again?

  2. That ominous wheel of fate Helen, so beautifully put, well done.

  3. Could we be wise just for once?
    Put our knowledge to good use
    Learn lessons from history
    Avoid our predicted fate
    Could we be wise just for once?
