Short Slavery poem by Charleen Martinez| Details |

Slavery

Grey faces
Concrete
Diets high in fat
Fumes
Pollution
Days that turn to night
Red eyes
Indifference
Longing for cheap pleasures
Slavery in America is different

Fear is 

A cat-of-nine tails

She live on slave ships and

Colonial dry lands

Striking against the

Backs of Slavery

Yes, fear can

Breaking the 

Heels of your soul 

Breaking flesh and breaking bone

civil wars





   Civil Wars 
A civil war lasts long in psyche of people 
Bitterness of having lost festers from one
Generation to the next and black America 
Are still victims caught in the middle of
The unresolved.  



Short Slavery poem by Kirin Lawrence| Details |

Fat Cats and Lawyers

Sharp Suited Sharks 
Feeding
Fervently Feasting, Foul Fiends 
Covetous Cuthroats, Cultured Convicts Convincing
Innocents Inked In Immensely Incurred Interests, 
Indebted
Enslaved, Effaced Emotions, Exasperated


Short Slavery poem by Steve Eng| Details |

Only



Only dreams remain

Within Mans mind;

To weave and wind

Patterns in a chain

Connecting brain to brain.



Only dreamers are

Untied and free:

Their slavery

Is to some faint star,

Enchanting, yet so far.


Short Slavery poem by mourning mist| Details |

Enslaved By Darkened Feminine Race

Enslaved by dominance and shackles,

Submissively obedient in silence,

Femme fatales with their modernized slavery,

Man kneels and then bows,

Yielding to remain in servitude,

Controlled by the darkened dominant feminine race.


Short Slavery poem by Amaru Tupak| Details |

Slavery

Why are we stuck in slavery?
We all born and torn apart 
Cause of slavery
We jump outta frying pan into 
another form of slavery
We all have misery from slavery
Its weird being in slavery
The worse slavery is being a 
slave Master


Short Slavery poem by Just That Archaic Poet| Details |

Curmudgeon

My Resentments are so ill-behaved
By and by- by them enslaved!
Was I made to be depraved,
(Just another Soul to save?)
Afraid to say or hear the Truth,
Cannot bear to see the proof
My life grows cold, alas! I'm old!
Oh, my God! Where went my youth?


Short Slavery poem by Sabina Nicole| Details |

Splinters

Haunted,
By Faces ,
Empty places,
I try to erase this.
Echoes... from these caves
Reminding me of all those slaves.
Dismembered operation,
Complications,
On the stations.
Sexuality sold to thieves,
While snakes sneak up their sleeves.

I peer through mists of coming years,

The present disappears,

The crimson clouds of war blow past

Utopiaworld peace at last.



No famine, plagues or hunger then,

World law among all men,

Complete coerced security,

The subtlest sort of slavery.

In The Belly of Slave Ships

<center>The road

To slavery

Shall die

This Profitable enterprise

So full of lies

Someones property or 

Human chattel

Chained in the

Belly of slave ships,

Side-by-side

The rights of men denied

Lord, we curse the vipers, 

The maggots and 

The flies</center>


Short Slavery poem by turrner bodeen| Details |

taming flowers

there's not a flower

can't grow wild

thrive neglected and ignored

but how much better

some can do when caged

tied to stakes

and pruned

their buds collected

to encourage growth

the sun, the rain, the earth

and care and harvesting

no less important

to renew the bloom.


Short Slavery poem by John Pen| Details |

I am a slave

My message lies not in the sentence

If you learn to read between the lines

You will hear stories in my silence

My life is not about roses and wines



I look strong on the exterior

But I am weak on the interior

I may be smiling on the outside

But I am hurting on the inside


Short Slavery poem by Victor Chavez| Details |

Lifeless hiring centers

Lifeless hiring centers
look upon papers and not people
Hated for not having a coin,
who you are is ignored. 
Your family hates you for being poor
rather than loving who you are.
The soul despised society does oppress.

People's eyes blinded by greed does bind them in endless slavery.


Short Slavery poem by Rixa White| Details |

For What's Worth Breathing

<em>
Look at me
I am the life in a wasteland

Look at me
I am the slavery through the ages

Look at me
I am the mirror of the world

Look at me
I am the illusion Ive fought for

Look at me
Im still loving you

and I keep being here

for you, for me,
and for whats worth breathing
</em>

YHWH-Yahweh



The most important name of God in the Old Testament (Ex 3:14)

It can be translated I AM WHO I AM

For Jews as well as Christians

It designates the one God of the whole world

Their creator. Preserver

Covenant partner, liberator from slavery in Egypt

Judge and Savior.

To Do List

I've a million things to do today:
Like save the world, and cure the sick,
Feed the starved, and free the Slaves-
Sustain the Poor, my stars predict!
A home for all, the naked clothed,
And make the water clean to drink
I bring them Peace, and save their Soul;
I do, I do! Just ask my Shrink!


Short Slavery poem by TOM GREEN| Details |

Can you see mee,

Someone's mother
 A wife
 Your sister
 My aunt
 Beaten abused..
 Battered an broken
 Blaming themselves
 In the shadows
 Feeling invisible
 Some are lost
 Scars are there
 Wings sprout ..
 They fly
 Can you see me?



 This is my view of growing up around women abused an violated.

Short Slavery poem by Trisha Sugarek| Details |

Memories of the South

Memories of the South



spanish moss shimmers

slave ghosts of days long gone by

hanging from the trees



stain on Old Glory

dark time of subjugation

when man enslaved man



memories forever

then bodies, now gray moss hangs

tears, blood darken roots



Trisha Sugarek from

The World of Haiku 






Short Slavery poem by Tara Shaw| Details |

Affixed

Forward and directly

Fantastically

From me

Error made in rage

Cage this stage and page

But believe boldly

I equal this sequel

Slanders slivering toung

Will seal to slavery

That woman is dead

So are the rest

Best for pity

Puts lack

Into fact

Whole I am to you all,now.



                     


Short Slavery poem by Yolanda Jones| Details |

freedom from jane doe

desperation and solitude 
freedom of self expression 
sent me into modern day 
slavery a victim of plagery 
I began using my slave name 
kinggirlchild I found my way home 
empty and shallow my heart
racing I fell to my knees crawling
with pages in hand in this fair land
oh how grand an American poet survived


Short Slavery poem by Just That Archaic Poet| Details |

Nothing Can Stop Me Now

I changed the Game, it isn't the same-
I am free of the Guilt, free of the Shame
Released from my shackles, freed from my chains-
My Life has become the sum of mundane
A quiet Life, it is, indeed
The only thing I have wanted
To be alone, is all I need
To seek my keep henceforth undaunted

KNOW YOUR PLACE CONTEST ENTRY


Short Slavery poem by Jerry Stevenson| Details |

A Sad State Of Affairs

He robbed a bank,

His armpits stank,

He ran a scam,

He screwed a lamb,

He is a drunk,

He has a pet skunk,

He cripples nuns,

He stole some funds,

He spits on graves,

He owns some slaves,

He cheats on his wife,

He kills kittens with a knife,

He pissed on a pew,

He laughs at me and you,

He is a politician.


Short Slavery poem by chandra MT| Details |

Poetry

Poetry is slavery,
Not physically but mentally,
How far will we all go,
To make sure we know,
Everything?
Even though it may sting,
Our hearts may dream,
So it may seem,
That it is love,
Your heart is the power above,
Neither you nor I can say,
That we'll meet another day,
So lets enjoy this hour,
Our love is our power.


Short Slavery poem by ollakunle campbell| Details |

WE WORN A RACE


WE WORN A RACE

Sited around the fading fire
With broken wills and glowing shame
They walk the  darkness
Burden with stiffened hopes 
They trudge ahead 
With a shorten vision
They soon lost the sun
With no dazzling rays 
And no mingling heat
They settled in a long struggle
Amidst so much trouble
They miss the days future 






Short Slavery poem by kayzen daramola| Details |

ONCE AND FOR ALL

Miles apart from the 

lost,stages in ages 

seeketh thy merry in a 

glance......

Victory won in a longest 

losted battle,a stripe 

healeth thee,



Merry days,slavery 

slayed,freedom 

gained,by His blood 

cleaneth we-e...



Mercy  and grace 

runneth from THY 

throne,by His blood our 

sins are no longer 

known... Alass


Short Slavery poem by Jerry T Curtis| Details |

Little Black Box

Little Black Box

Where You lie Sleeping

Little Black Box

Your Secrets Keeping

You'll Never Talk

In That Little Black Box



UnMarked Grave

Where You Are Wasting

UnMarked Grave

In Soil Basting 

Just another Knave

In An Unmarked Grave



Barren womb

Just Like A tomb

Barren Womb

Life exhumed 

We're all Doomed

In A Barren Womb


Short Slavery poem by sekitto kisakye| Details |

SLAVERY

Slaves ,slaves , slaves

slaves in the world,

working  for sugar,

food and tea.



Slaves in the world,

working day and night,

but nothing they get

from their sweat.



Slavery in the world,

it's some thing wrong,

the source of cry

among human beings.



We should a void it,

the world is for all,

the poor and the rich.

Jesus died for us.


Short Slavery poem by Marie/Ismarili Gardener/Isreal| Details |

Heart Ache

Heart ach comes daily
No words are true
What you chice to believe
Is completely up to you
Love your life
Seek for the truth
Hold on to your youth
For it is not yours
It's all a demise
Lost in the hands of others
Before our own eyes
It's time to wake up
It's time to realize
That your stilling slavery
You are locked up
Your just asleep
Running with your eyes wide shut


Short Slavery poem by Mustapha Mohammed| Details |

Behind These Prison Walls

<em>I prowl the days within myself
To heal these battle scars
But days at times unwrapps itself
With binding sturdy bars.

That holds me back from freedom's grace
From the man I'd hoped to be
Often scans my troubled face
In search of empty glee.

All my days since life begun
The constant fight appalls
Often glows what strength has won
Behind these prison walls.</em>




Short Slavery poem by Sarah Muldoon| Details |

Desire

Desire, an ever burning coal within us

awaiting to be fuelled by a lover or 

fame or money for others 



An unquenchable thirst for touch

and breathless acts of pleasure

Desire, the dreams of devils and angels



A driven force un-yeilding to so many pleas

An urge that can tear us in half

or simply make us whole



Desire the brilliant and dangerous 

wishes from the soul...


Short Slavery poem by danny grantham jr| Details |

Slave To The Unavailable

With eyes closed

And arms open,

Unbalanced conjoinment leaves souls hungry for that which they so deserve

Yet do not receive

This starvation 

Blended with desire and need

Creates false perception

That lives hidden still-,

When eyes open

And arms closed,

Emptiness and anger inundated by fatigue fuel this hunger

As the balance slowly returns

And the slavery comes to an end.


Short Slavery poem by Rachel Kovacs| Details |

Invisible

They
Are
Among us.
Not alien
But more
Like us than
You will ever know.
They are
Neighbors
Dying
Of
Disease
And 
Hate
And
Grief.
They live
Next door
Behind walls
Built
Not of stone
But of fear.
Hungry
Penniless
Alone.
They are
Stereotypes
Birthing
Children.
Ad dictions
Carving
Flesh from
Bones.
They are
Sold
Into
Slavery
Beaten
By
Other
People's
Philosophies.
They are
Invisible.
But not
To
Me.


Short Slavery poem by Rebel Poet| Details |

Programmed

Streams of words I observe,
In rivers of information in which many are submerged,
Benevolent urge there is,
No room for reason in this pool of treason,
Exotic light so hypnotic it changes by season,
Widely appeasing, commercially right,
In the majorities sight, 
Victorious in each and every fight,
Over your psyche,
If you can not resist then you might be,
Addicted  to this tube just like me!

Short Slavery poem by Alesha Roche'| Details |

A Black Queen

A black queen knows how to handle her castle, her kingdom

Miss queen of the mile beautiful as she walks down the isle

A queen of the mere year coming and going

A black queen knows nothing of any slavery

A black queen of the wheather 

A queen like no other

There are no rainy days in her world

A queen so great she is the sun, moon , stars, night, and day

I'm proud to say that queen is my MOM

History



This poem
Is not a poem?
but
the poem
of the poet
in
captivity
chained in slavery
this poem
was taken from us
stolen
by you
this poem
must
never
be divulgated
because
this poem
talks about slavery boats
this poem
was never written
never thought
this poem
is for the people
my people
not your people
but
mine
cause
it talks about Africa
this is a poem
full of this
and
this is not this
but
history.


Short Slavery poem by Neldy Jolo| Details |

NO FEARSOME ISLAND

I love the island.

Island is no man.

When peace is none.

Beautiful island.

With beach.

And white sand.

Before I don't feel the fear.

Fearsome here.

Fearsome there.

Fearsome tell.

Old business dear.

Trade with with slavery.

That's only history.

Shouldn't happen today.

Tomorrow would be great easy.

No abduction.

Fearsome no more.

I love you peace.

Layag Sug!

Short Slavery poem by Mason Land| Details |

In-Dust-Tree

Industrialization,

Urbanization;

Metallic sheens overtake 

glossy greens

as acrid smoke

chokes the land.



All would seem lost,

but there is hope.



Vast floods drown cemented corruption,

earthquakes crumble the foundation of greed,

wildfires blaze through the gates of moral slavery.



Though she may be down,

she's not out.

Mother Nature is reclaiming her land,

and this time,

she won't be stopped.
