Cloud 7

1.Fill me up, I am always lacking.
Consumption, the name of the game.
The hunger devours the horse,
fattens me to the core.
I'm about to burst...
Always empty,
yet full of

Pension raiders anonymous.
We live to carry secrets,
yearning to fill this need.
Profit devotees

We're all gonna die...why bother?
I may as well just sit here
wallowing in despair,
a quiet, lonely,
slacker. A

Come here baby and say hello.
How easy is it to come

mother to us all
shame, guilt, and

Am I pretty enough to be
a beauty queen? Parade me
around in fancy cars.
I must protect my

6. Grass is greener on the other side.
Why wouldn't it be? These neighbors
are so filthy rich with their
hundred thousand dollar

mansions built on

7. In the end there was always hatred,
deeply seated, mindless, blind rage.
Searching for a suitable

But I can't share in your euphoric state of ecstasy...
I just don't feel that way about myself

    Great work on this one, Yoni. I appreciate your perspective on this, and agree with the idea that some only pretend to relate to all walks of life. Many only see things that revolve in their own little world. Many are filled with greed, lack compassion, and are absent a world view. Undivided is a proclamation of patriotism and an encouragement to stand together in the face of evil. I'd never say America alone has God's blessing and protection, for that is quite far from my belief. Hugs, Donna

    Sad statements made here, Yoni, yet skillfully penned. Even those who seem to have it all are sometimes living with "loveless fear." But I have seen love and compassion in YOUR heart, Yoni. Hopefully, you are just exposing the problems in society that make the downtrodden feel worse about themselves. I am still out of town with family, but stopped by to see what I've been missing. Glad I caught this one. Excellent use of form and creativity! Love you! Carolyn

    The hopeless despair and intensity just pours from each well written, Yoni.... it simply struggles with pain that is almost too real to bear. Excellent writing! ~ Carrie
