We Are But One


Through the gates we are led
Our souls now dead
For here we suffer conformity
Through brutality
Injustice and destiny
With decimation
Comes Revelation
And ultimate assimilation

  6. I don’t know whether to weep or be glad. It is the alchemy of the soul of which you write. We are firewalkers in this life. Witness the transmutation of pain into love.

    Thank you for your kind comments on my site. I am glad that my words bring some peace.

  7. Great power and rhythm in this poem. I felt it fight with the assimilation. Thanks for responding to the prompt-- it is always good to find new poets.

  8. Very powerful. The type of power that hammers in and stays with the reader.
