A Poem

The Earth shakes

The palisades broke tomorrow

My placid lake was taken

When I woke to sorrow

The hull of the boat was broken

By the storm stoked by hate

The sentence was wrote

And I was smitten

In My Future

When my ground was shaken


The World aches

The promenades overshadowed

The love of my life was still

‘Til struck by strife and sorrow

Our ship’s tiller was stolen

And I was born to bear the weight

But my heart was smote

And divorce written

In My Future

When my ground shaked


Why do I fear the future

Is it change or chaos

The War for Peace?


Why do I hate the hatred

Is it acrimony or medicine

The Toxic Gasps for Air?


Has my anxiety overreached

Or Am I Too desperate to be spared

From being froze

With suspicion

Of My Future

When my ground was shaken?
