Best Joanna Smith Poems

+ Fav Poet


As our world lies in havoc 
she waits deep in the inticingly 
dark forest 
she glances upon us
though to her we are but a 
bleak glimmer of misery on the 
our world begins to crumble 
our oceans dry and turn to 
and the earth cracks and 
begins to break away below 
our feet
and as we starve
she picks ripe succulent fruits 
from lush strong vines 
she plunges her teeth through 
the skin 
and flavorful juices roll down 
her tongue
she runs and plays throughout 
the forest and skips through 
rolling streams 
and the sound of her wet feet 
slapping on rocks echo's 
through the woods
she cherishes every thing in 
her world 
while the brutal few still in ours 
ravage what is left of it 
they victimize the weak and 
for them to survive is to fight 
is to kill 
while the weaker waste away 
or survive by taking from the 
corpses that litter the earth 
burned crisp by the seering sun
but she sings enchantingly 
through the black mass of thick 
and dances elegantly with fire 
for years she watches us with 
little intrest 
until one intensely dark night 
she looks upon our world and 
thinks this could be a sad 
but she never feels sadness 
and she knows that everything 
happens for a reason.

    Very touching work of art Joanna. I can only imagine the amount of despair and intutaiveness you had while writing this poem. I can very much relate to this poem and the feeling that lies beneath the surface.

    Hi Joanna Eden has a multifaceted concept that leads one divine process. Well crafted with a pulse that beats across the page. We are made in his likeness and the earth was made in the reflection of heavens glory. Mankind was created to be the caretakers of the land and the earthen vessels we possess. We have been given endless chances to seed,grow and encourage both soil. Yet all worsens. Your insight into the new creation is very paralleled. Excellent read my friend Love Cookie
