Baltimore

Pressure Escaping

Keep on letting the pressure build

Then blame the steam as it escapes

Violate the lives of countless souls

Then blame them when up they rise

Let them have their “tantrum” to forget

Go back to business as usual with smugness

Saying that no one will notice it anyway

Keep putting our youth in untenable positions

They’re going to die soon anyway, right?

All lives matter!!

Your day is coming!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
