A Poem by Ty


Unjust in echoes
I wince over war
Darkness pressed,
Poured over evermore at night.
Left, right
Weaponry - Heavenly
Mockery in juxtaposition
Ever emerging anti-intellectualism
"People who shut their eyes to reality,
Simply invite their own destruction."
I carry solace, cloaked in the armor of Baldwin's words.
For the ocean's waters bear no sympathy,
You've fallen asleep in the Lion's Den.

First, love the photo. I could spend all day looking out at those waters. Secondly, the quote... "People who shut their eyes..." Is too true. This is a piece that legitimately makes me think of how everyone else sees reality, because a lot of times reality is too much to bear for some...and I just can't wrap my head around that.

Such serene tang! Brought with an unjust truth and our own lies!

I greatly enjoyed this poem. Especially when quoting "People who shut their eyes to reality,
Simply invite their own destruction." Interesting...

Thank you for your submission to A Poetic Canvas of Reflection and Observance!
