until you remember

until you remember

A Poem by KWP

the veil lifted from this bond

extradition from ‘us'  a decision mine alone 


blood also belongs to you 

you watch them die

listen to the greed, while

watching them die

let their dying blood 

course your veins 

until you remember what it means to be

human again

A very humanitarian poem and what it means to be humans; we all share gifts of humanity, guilts of inhumanity.
Wars break all bonds sadly.

We forget so much when we focus on Selves; think our day to day is how life should be but -is anything but. Comes time to stand and smell fresh air - not the stale; the sad loss of loves and moments spent. Too much of the right and best forgotten, when loss stings

' the veil lifted from this bond
extradition from ‘us' a decision mine alone ' -

can be enforced, nudged as was initially intended by.. who knows. once a decade considered debut!

Should I have applauded your deeply felt feelings -or searched for your opponent's stand, my friend?

When we forget to be human, we lose purpose, we lose the bond with another.
eventually that person's tolerance does not survive.
it is bloody field of evidence left.
the heartless drive the caring away.
