The World Is a Minefield.

The World Is a Minefield.

A Poem by Diana

The world is a minefield and I'm tired of being rocked.
The world is a minefield,
and truth be told
I never recovered from the shock.

"The world is a minefield,"
She said as she walked
right over a field of flowers
ground from rubble into dust.

Beautifully penned. The world is a minefield and we play our part in making it such.

Agreed. Thanks!
A fitting analogy of the world and all it entails. From dust to dust, rubble to rubble, ya to nay, mystery to history. Whoa...An excellent one...:).......................

Relentless chaos and decay can take its toll and zap our spirits !

Nicely penned, one we can all easily equate with !

yes, those flowers can be deceiving....look like love roses but end up being thorny thickets of heart blasts that leave us rocked, shocked and alone.

Thank you, Jacob.
I liked the poetry. I wanted to read more. You left the reader with place, vision and thoughts. Also left a open ending. Always good to read your words Diana.

I felt like it needed more, too. Perhaps at a later date; I don't want it to feel forced. Thank yo.. read more
