A Poem by Asante

Hands together, all --
I pray toward you all
as no math of mind
can alter mine
to think the lesser of you,

For every heart
half-eaten but beating,
there's a fuller one
entrenched in the
embers of fully living,

And while the fists of war
offer incendiary guidance,
artists: score
beautiful music
to mute the sirens.

Peace.

Wow, this is incredible. Rarely do poems make my eyes water but this one did for sure. It seems like every time I read your writing, I find a piece better than the last one I read! I like the lines "for every heart, half-eaten but beating". As I interpret it, that means that even if you're broken, you can still keep going and pull yourself together. I also like the contrast of this poem - lesser vs all, dying and destroyed vs living and hopeful, and war vs peace. Definitely saving this to my library :)

I love this one, it gives a sense of hope like a fresh rainbow after the storm. When we are connected to our Higher Selves, we recognize the oneness in all.

Well good for you. Hopefully you'll love the blessing.

Thank you. I hope you enjoy.
Awesome...an acceptance and humbleness, the stroke of creativity muting temporarily the pain and cycles of negativity within the world. Seeing all as equal and no division, empathy. Let the sirens wail for no siren can outmatch an honest, poetic soul that weaves art from the heart :)

We hope.
"And while the fists of war

to mute the sirens.
Peace."
The word peace rarely spoke. Sirens scream louder than the people of hope and peace. Maybe we need to scream louder. Thank you Asante for sharing the excellent poetry.

Very nice bro! I think it's such a trip how I can look into other artist, musicians, writers, for inspiration, hope, understanding, etc... and people on here are doing the same when they read our writings...
