pieces of me

pieces of me lying on the side of the road
my flesh is now shredded
by the footsteps of inhumanity
a heart which carried a song of love
blackened by the tar of lies and deceit
of those I once loved
eyes which only saw the beauty of life
were pulled from their sockets
thrown onto the roadway by the racism and intolerance
of those who preach their hate in the name of god
my lips once red and pursed
now lie in a pool of blood, the blood of the homeless
and hungry who are cast aside
the scents of lavender which tickled my nose are
now gone from my nostrils
and the stench of death permeates

pieces of me

    Oh my dear Sally, this one is so sad. I find that when I write of this is usuly when I’m in the dark. So many things here I find in this piece, So many words that I could underline, but then I would have to underline the whole poetry which is beautiful. I am so glad to see you are back here again and just want you to know that I am delighted. You will have a friend here and I would like to send my sun to shine over you.
    Lots of love and angel hugs your way.

    Nice to see you after so long !
    This sad music reminds me a very old song in my native ,

    Ekk dil ke tukkde hazaar huye
    koi idhar gira koi udhar gira !

    Heart broke in thousand pieces
    some fell here some fell there !

    God bless you my friend .

  • Thank you so much!! xo
