And Her World is Broken

Bent but not yet broken 
Fear-empowered 
bruises across my back 
Caused by the icy injustice of crows 
keep the fragments of the broken glass of my soul 
Travel along this river of supernatural prisms 
Take the genes of the parasites feeding within my skull 
& multiply the masses of perversion 
Of everything 
The world is dead & drifting 
Lost in the glow of something new 
Of something stronger than yourself 
Eat this hate again 
Cover my mouth 
with the wet lips 
of your sociopathic treatises 
Suffocating & swallowing Freedom 
Vomiting slavery 
And burning, meaningless war 
Aggression is succession 
in this world of savagery and pain 
Power exists within the broken fingers
of your corrupted Nationalism 
And I wait without question, against this doctrine, 
Against this way 
Shining a light in the dark 
The Earth Mother 
Is abused
and left weeping of loss, 
of death & decay 
because her world was gone 
Her world is gone 
             ...And Her world is broken

    Hi Lauryn, i feel the brokenness left behind, nature will still shine after all the chaos,, provoked by humanity. I like the start of the poem, DENT BUT NIT BROKE",,, deeper than a cut... ((soup mail)) always~ LINDA
