Screaming at the Sky


Screaming at the Sky
Mothers screaming mournfully at a deaf sky holding their heads helplessly as they cry pitiful tears for innocent, defenseless children slaughtered in fatal cross fires, deadly drug wars drive-by shootings, and cases of mistaken identity on blood-splattered streets, senseless endless violence; but who really gives a damn, only grief-stricken mothers screaming mournfully at a deaf sky.

I really enjoyed reading this poem.I don't know to must about the different formats. I just write how I feel but.. I did try Blitz for the first time if you would like to check them out. "Eyes Can't Find" and "Stormy" and let me know what you think of them.

How could any person comment without using the word:POWERFUL! Love that you did it in this genre and captured so well the image of the lost children and screaming mothers. Real skill to write in this genre! It takes a lot of tugging at the words. This is a 7. Please do more of these!

Hi Milly, thank you for stopping by with wonderful compliments, my friend! This type of violence is an unfortunate reality of our times and sadly too many people have become too complacent about these atrocities. Warmest regards. Pandita

True, true, true, I never take for granted the days we have. Unfortunately it is those that deserve so much more that lead these lives. In the capture of poverty and little hope and then this. A brilliant write Pandita. I will fav this, make sure I don't forget.

Thank you, Maurice, for choosing to read this piece and for your wonderful compliments! As the saying goes, "No man is an island... any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind." Therefore, we are all affected by tragedy and violence! I also thank you for making this one of you favs! Warmest regards. Pandita
