Words Used

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 5:35 pm

Weapons fired causing
tears and
tragedy.

A flame that
rages through a
drought stricken forest.

Storm surge sustained
in the brunt of the system
slamming ashore.

Each scene not
peaceful not
pristine.

Each scene
we decry
as tragic
to the mind
with sadness
to the eye
so why
WHY
do we make
WORDS
our weapon of
choice,
expounding
equivalent destruction
with the mere sound
of our voice?

Like bullets
blades
or broken glass
we fashion our arsenal
with the words
we amass
first starting the fire
then spreading the tumult
by adding more gas.

~Miguel
