The noise of our society

Society that is crumbling

Crumbling from greed and hate

Hate filled voices screaming


Violence at every turn

Turn the love around

Around for them that yearn

Yearn for peace on hallowed ground


Our hearts crack and split

Split and chip in painful sound

Sounds of our desire to quit

Quit the bloodying of sacred ground.


There is no rest or peace

Peace from the silence of the soul

Soul of the earth, her cries never cease

Loudly breaking from pole to pole.

OctPoWriMo Day 11. Silence. Loop Poem

Published by: writersdream9

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.
