So Fresh, So Clean

By: Lalli

 

 

Why do we hate with hearts like blackened lungs?

 

Poisoned

 

Where cultured differences confuse colored skin

I feel the tension of your annoyance in your grinding teeth

While a social class disconnect of judgment burns the air we breathe

 

Fueling intolerance- it’s hate we breed

 

Media manipulation pulls the strings

We dance

We dance

Effortlessly we dance

While relentless rage passes through generations

We keep fighting

We must fight

Unaware of our friendly-fire through intoxicated eyes

Carelessly we spray aimless rounds until innocence is slain

For what?

And why?

Our projections misplaced upon the faces of strangers

 

Look close

 

Reflect upon the mirrors of introspection to identify the residence of your feeling’s origin

It’s home is in need of upkeep

Clean thoroughly against this infectious disease

Broom cobwebs of ignorance and neglect from the corners

Search the shadows; open the blinds exposing hates unseen fester

And when everything is finally clean

Don’t be surprised when all you find is not the hate you felt

But the root of truth

Once squandering

Your inner-peace

This is a terrific poem. The metaphors are great and easy to understand. The human race is too full of hate, injustice, prejudice and intolerance that are fueled by the media and to be honest on the Internet. We carry all this from generation to generation. It has to change, and I think it is warrior poets such as you that will help the human race.

Well done.

I loved your message! lovely sentiment, humanity; Thank you for this.
It doesnt flow as I would like it to, but there are styles to poetry, which is something I have learnt to overcome relatively, thus become capable of enjoying this beautiful piece.
A pleasure to read, really.
