Sunday’s Poetry Post



There is no understanding,

We’re light years away.

Shot down before landing,

Consumed by the blaze.


We’re dead without dying,

Ignoring each other’s life.

Gave up before trying,

Stabbed without a knife.


Too selfish to see,

Too vain to bend,

Won’t speak to agree,

Rather fight than mend.


We need not comprehend

Different views of life;

Listen and don’t offend,

Acceptance will end strife.


Seeing with opened eyes

Ensures our basic rights.

Foes change to allies,

Understanding one another unites.
