“A Beautiful Existence”

Is there no way out,
yes. . . through  life's front door,
because the back has been
blocked by dead bodies
and burned out shells of dreams.

If the fire engulfs humanity
will we be able to fight our way out,
or will it be Custer's Last Stand,
a divided and conquer 
of the beloved misunderstood world.

Burn baby burn is our mentality
to our house of apathetic cards so fragile,
while worshiping the green icons,
waiting for our  platinum 
card to be cut up or to finally expire.

If we don't listen to the music
the beat of a different drum will cease,
turn into a monotone silence
colored by the green ashes,
of a once beautiful empathetic existence.

  1. Love reading your poetry. I had a hard seeing this one on my phone because of the color and had to highlight it in order to read it. Keep writing! 🙂
