BRUISES: The Silence —Pawners Paper

Bruises, a poem on the wounds sustained by the victims of the atrocities of the society

A broken man


Horses neigh
While the birds chirp with a cursed voice
The sky weeps
When the sun burns until the night beckons
Misery wore the cloak of wonders
And the land weeps not for her sake
The world reeks of her deeds
And her hope was shattered into pieces.
Tell me, of which season and time
Shall the mind wander still like a god
When the flesh is an embodiment of terror?
Till the four walls cracks
And the shade darkens?
I guess not. The dreams were slain as they were birthed;
For those who spoke not of the torn panties’ and rough thrust
And those seduced by the lost voice of the hung rope.
The wounds only heals into scars;
For those enslaved by the voices in the head,
And those ripped of their fleshes by the rod of violence
And those who lives the day the same
When the street lends a cent and parents disappears.
They whisper, for the world rarely listens,
For the world only recognizes the suit and the bills
But not the rags and the pleads
They whisper still for their voices are not theirs.
