An acrostic poem a day for July 2014 - for day 25 - Voices

Victorious sounds of
Ours rising higher and higher from
Inside to beyond the sky we
Create world with our words we
Erase pain and move through
Sorrow with our moan
Today is the day! Venela Flagg (V Kali), Tchise AjePam Ward and I are looking forward to seeing you at 4:00 at The World Stage Art, Education & Performance Gallery.

All the bombs dropping
All the warnings to run
All the nowhere to go
All the scriptures used as weapons
As excuses
All the excuses
To not love
To not feel
To not understand
To not help
To not reach
To not hear
All the name calling
All the fingers pointing
All the bodies
All the no food
All the blood
All the history
All the lies
All the refusing to see other human beings as human beings too
All the allegiance
The tears
The no more tears to cry
All the genocide
Genocide
Genocide
War
Murder
All the women
All the children
All the men
All the
All the
All the
Adds up to
Zero bodies left
If we keep
Keep
Keep
On
Like
This
