missing you


innocence is regrettably lost
when exposed to a virtual world
bent on glorifying decadence
through intense selfishness
where powerfully dark forces
can bring an angel to her knees
sending her somersaulting
beyond gravitational forces
that keep this planet in place

lost in translation


simplicity evades the thinking
of human governance
as man-made disasters
leaves every nation’s people
weeping
and calling
for answers to coexistence

halfway across the planet
voices can be heard
carried across tradewinds
as ancient as the book
protesting
and pleading
to be heard and understood
