Burn it all down

Burn it all down

A Poem by Jane Stones

Because of this: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=20x9xEzlODU&feature=youtu.be

For a second I'd like to close my eyes and imagine I don't live in a world where children are hurt
Dig my head into the sand and forget the word rape
Only a moment to join the sunshine as it warms an image of healthy happy children.
Well-adjusted, trauma free, singing little humans

But if I close my eyes for a moment, if I dig my head into the sand, they are forgotten.
So I'll join the clouds instead as they mourn the loss of innocence
And together we will try to wash clean the massacred.
Adjusted, trauma-survivor, shouting little fighters

But if only, if only, the sun could burn it all down

My words are simple. They rarely make you think past them on a first read. I just write, just let the words flow, its not extravagant poetry worthy of praise but its honest and real and ready to be sh.. more..
