WE ARE HERE FOR ALL OF US(A poem inspired by Alicia Keys' song)

A poem that talks about the love worthy of being shared a togetherness of all humans on earth irrespective of the gender, race, religion and beliefs.

Let's talk about pride
A cerise scarred wings
Burdened by the chagrin of falling
Amongst wingless coloured folks
Thus, traipse like an unsatiated predator
Let's talk about war
The deafening silence from the toddlers' cry
And the stagnant fear in the wails of brave men
The wisp of curling angry smokes
Stifling the hard earned breath
Of wandering souls in half baked bodies
Cascadded narrowly on the bossom of crook earth
Muddled along with the chants of dirge
And lines of withered tears on bereaved cheeks
Let's talk about poverty
Stigmata stretched on weary infants faces
Breeding stillbirth smiles on empty cheeks
Limping stung dreams on a dry shaft routes
And a whole country a battalion of beggars
Surging shambled shallow minds to the mellow
Tunes from the strings of rounded ropes
Let's talk about rape
Subjectives borrowed from the abode of bruises
And tears shed from the stabbed hearts
Torn pants left unstitched
By men and women enslaved
To the foul, worm bred cakes of lust
Let's talk about violence
Broken bottles, fuming eyes
Flaccid flesh flickered openly by starved blades
Guns, blood, expect a sudden myriad funeral
Let's talk talk about the bar set within selves
The cloak of guilt we rented
The future we tail with the eyes of the past
The peace we left shattered
Like a defeated Goliath
Let's talk about the abandoned dreams
And the flushed ones
Made to taste the sour wine from the cup of life
Just to share the fruit from the garden of lust
Let's talk about religion
The night sons in form of shyster men
Dressed in the tailored garment of guise
Playing with the greasy tongues of the devil
While blind men feed fleshy notes
Into the spacy belly of the insatiable tithe
Let's talk about tears
A mystical misery surfaced from a lone land
Welling up with sabotaged emotions
Crystal, transparent, timid
But dark, clouded and wild
Let's talk about countries
Living in unending penury
Let's talk about nation
Poisoning the open stream of education
The wretch justice and wealthy crimes
And the mass hysteria in nigeria
The rogue and intoxicated peace
And the brutal rape congestion in india
Disturbing silence behind sealed doors
Bombing and starved tongues in afghanista
Let's talk the sieving words in our promises
Of our empty brains parading like an elongated gorrilla
Now let's talk about love
The giant sheltering wings on pertubed minds
Let's talk about peace
It's timidness, oneness and pureness
We are here, are we?
We are here for all of us
Through strifes portrayed in our dark palms
And pains and infinite tale revealed in our eyes
Through joy, and unconditional love
Are we? we are here
Let hands reach through each heart's depth
And draw out the gleamest of all treasure
Love, oneness, peace
Let us all unite with a golden soul
And clear the misery sideways the path to tomorrow
We are here for all of us
Are we? we are here!
