The Dividing Fence

15 12 2011

– I wrote this particular poem at a time in my life when, in retrospect, I was severely depressed. I had no friends and if you have ever been in that situation, it is frustrating beyond belief. My previous school was not exactly one that promoted free thought. To me, the worst thing in this world is prejudice and that is what this poem is about.

The grass is not greener on the other side
Or so they say
Funny what those with silver spoon in mouth and bloated pride
Say as they live life leisurely day by day

It’s not for the other side I long
I only ask to change the direction my wind would blow
And to live my life by the lyrics of my own song
And escape the stupidity of their pompous show

We all try to live our life as we will
And only we can change our course
If only for a moment the world would stand still
And stop the dividing fence at its source

Then perhaps society could coexist in spite
Of the prejudice and suspicion that darkens the light

Shatter the Wall

I’d shatter the wall

It’s just so tall

That wall it divides

And secrets hides

Silencing desperate cries

Go ahead

Pretend it’s not there

Keep the damn thing

Out of you hair

Someday it will fall

That monstrosity

Shall crush us all

Invisible, weightless

Of so many faces

The wall of oppression

The wall of hate

The wall of greed

Black-hole hearts it feeds

Just you wait

We’ll shatter that wall

With your help

It won’t be half as tall

There will come a day

When even quarks

Make prejudice look small


Lovely Lust

Hearts that pound

Breaths that sound

Arms encircle

And surround

Electricity stopped

Not by ground

In greed they take

For their thirsts to slake

Deadly desire

Bodies of fire

Defenses fall

No chance at all

Nature’s most potent

Siren call
