The Rage

The Rage

A Poem by James Paranormal
"

Just some loose free verse, no meter. taken from my site poetrylake.com / written 2/2/20.

"
There is a star, not in the sky,
but deep inside your chest,
and the spark is dying
because the world is dying,
and the truth is,
you are the heart of this world.

Keep yourself healthy,
study the gods, and stay wise,
keep the future in your eyes.
Touch reality.

Try not to think of life
as the road to death,
but think of dying
as the road to life.

10,000 maniacs are running
in the streets tonight,
breaking windows,
and starting fires.
Anarchy is raging
in the minds of the masses.

WOW! this write contains a very deep message. You portrayed the situation of current time so vividly. It triggers you to think about yourself even if the world goes maniac.

I am a huge fan of civil insurrection:) civil being the operative word I have many friends that are active protestors I try to go on occasion but owning a business and having Horrible feet to boot (pun intended) I don't get to participate to much these days:/ I don't think i fear death so much as I fear the end of artful expression...hopefully before my final deconstruction I can make enough marks to account for a well spent life:) your free verse conveys like a direct plug into your thought flow nicely which (to me) is the way that it should

Such a thought provocative write. You can allow things to swallow you whole or fight for your happiness. Nice work.

There is certainly plenty of anger on display at the moment. We have seen it in the UK as well as what's been taking place on the other side of the pond. Rioting and looting is ugly, people running amok in the streets is frightening. Hopefully it will pass over. Usually there is good reason for it to start. People think they aren't being heard. Enjoyed this first piece from you. Well penned.

Indeed, anarchy and vandalism seem to be popular in many places. Some of it has occurred not far from where I live. The hysteria, however, will run out of steam eventually, and some will have to assume responsibility for their acts.

the world is indeed in a bit of a pickle at the moment... mostly due to the way she has been treated, neglected and or abused... a novel way of presenting your first poem this time around.. All Good Things

my pleasure..
This piece appeals to me at this juncture in our lives, dealing with hate, racism, chaos...
Change is going to start from the core/heart of each individual and then a uniting of the whole.
excellent wording here.
