Wonder, Wonder…

A shock of truth.
Beyond blackened eyes,
and scorched retinas;
a veil of blood
masks drought
of a dehydrated being.

Lost within,
one can claim – a life less frightening – to a world,
of anguish and terror;
fueled by discrimination
and the lies conveyed in fear.

shattered by truth;
the understanding forgiven,
through trust herein,
only to empower the strength beneath.

    I kept thinking about the song “Strange Fruit” ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4ZyuULy9zs )as I read this poem…it seemed to be a nature connection for me. Thanks for sharing this.

Tell me when you think.
