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 :)

No man, of the intellectual sorts, can make me perceive us as non-equals. And as times are stretched and spirits are worn thin, there are always men whom stand up-right, for those of us in need. Yet for the blind: battles still must ensue. Whereas the hopefuls, seek new ways; new waves, of expression, for the world's sanity's sake.

Much love,

Hey, I appreciate that. :) Thanks a whole lot.
There are things beyond math. I liked that idea within the poem. "Music to mute the sirens", a lot of ways to interpret that line, love it!

Maths are just margins that, while useful, can always be stepped beyond as a creative.
