A Chance For a Poet S Song

A Chance For A Poet’s Song 

How would I have the upper hand 
as all around in chaos got drowned 
How would I stick to a single stand
when upheavals the soul do confound.
My words whiling away an abiding journey 
digging for the nectar of beauty many a well 
long striving to my turmoil hide and bury
keep chill and in my secluded shell dwell.
Shall my ink change shade and scent
from dark black to the colour of blood 
from the aroma of amber to an anger to vent
and pour heavy pain out of my chest flood.
So hard I tried to forge my very shield 
preventing the eye to crime scenes roam
see so filthy hands evil and power wield 
wiping from the world face a whole Home.
A word against a world going wrong 
shall I yield to what I truly can’t handle 
make time, give a chance for a poet’s song
step into the light and leave a bleak bubble.

I've been away for a bit but glad I came across this gem. Yes, let's all sing the poets' song, a song against hate, oppression, injustice and for love, compassion, justice. Very nice Besma

I feel your pain, dear Besma, your passion flows through your poetry and resonates with my heart. The senselessness of so much that is happening in our world can be overwhelming, my friend. Thank you for allowing your voice to share the thoughts of your soul through your poetry. Bless you and may the peace that passeth understand caress you in peace. Smiles and blessings Hugs, Bill

“So hard i tried to forge my shield” that line itself speaks volumes to my soul dear besma! Your way with weaving thoughts and feelings is so profound and moving and has a captivating flow throughout. I absolutely love your rhymes! So sublime and creative: a word against a world gone wrong sometimes i wonder if its enough to be the symphonic voice to so many that has for long been served wrong. A chance for a poets song, to find light and embrace it all, ive had the privilege through this poem!

I see a lot of angst and emotions in your poem.. One that seems to portray an injustice or unfair actions against you.. a poet's song should always be peaceful and spread poetic love, but I guess some do not see it that way... An excellent poem.

The world sure is chaotic at the moment. If mother nature doesn't kill us, we'll do it ourselves.

Dear poetess, this is a very poignant and heartfelt write with myriad emotions that stir the soul! The feeling of contemplating complex dimensions and drowning in the raging tides, it's quite palpable here..The scents of our quills and inks change, ranging from different feelings and you've so evocatively you've described how we hide behind beautiful sceneries and veil our pain. We also try to forge a protective shield..In many ways! A very introspective and thought-provoking poem this is, a fav
