SOLDIERS OF MERCY

clumsily walking around soldiers of mercy

annoyed with their task

sparkling green attire, smiles worn as a mask

giving a helping offer with one hand

shooting strangers with the other, obeying a command

hearing the voices of people unknown

wondering at being there as he’s thrown

he feels his flesh cold, his body shivers

red roses gushing he can’t stop the quivers

A Misplaced World

a suitcase packed with secrets

a book seldom read

a broken watch that only shows

the past hours instead

a mirror covered with dust

a path that lays nothing ahead

a broken door colored with use

knocking but no sound is heard

a tree left without a leaf

everything it had has been shed

a place we once called home

left to ruins longing to get repaired

Let me love tomorrow

if by chance I’m here tomorrow

remind me to be kind

remind me to listen

may you find the fountain of love

may you find peace

Pandemic, May 2021

lonely faces covered with masks

looking out with fearful eyes

streets void of people

locked behind empty walls

from my window I can see

the child who wants to be free

mother earth is breathing

while humans are in captivity

it took a pandemic to wake us up

but in no time, it’ll be forgotten history

we’ll get back to consumption and greed

to killing, hoarding and abs...

grotesque men

I know I’ve got to do it

but it has to be done in daytime

can’t move to the right

can’t move to the left

top is out of reach

and the bottom, well, it’s the bottom

where do I go from here?

don’t judge me for who I am

I’ve been judged before

I escaped a country to find shelter

my new home a prejudiced land with no escape

run away and find a new home

where children...
