The Circle of Life

The Circle of Life

A Poem by Heather Rodwell

Not too sure, haven't read it, just wrote it now. Look and see for yourself.


A person in a sacred space

Seems so calm and content,

But when their place has been intruded

By evil folks with knives and guns,

A person seems slightly disgruntled

And rain overshadows his innermost fears.

But when these evil beings

Rape and plunder

Steal and murder,

The calmest of people

Seem, well...

Not so calm


This is the way of the world,

The circle of life.

The Yin and the Yang of everything

We see, hear, feel, taste, smell.

All rolls into one, when distressed

And becomes a bombshell of consciousness.


Never be that person who seems so calm,

Never open your door to evilness.

It will tear you apart

Eat your soul,

And leave you

For Dead
