Levitate

These days we levitate
On words and thoughts of indiscriminate hate
From partisanship we’ll not deviate
No matter the chaos we create

These days the truth will fly
For but a moment whereas a lie
Traverses the globe in a blink of an eye
Without us questioning why

The devils all dance upon our belief
Traffic in points scored through death and grief
And never a moment of calm or relief
When power is but a thief

These days deluded we watch the news
Stoking our certainty on similar views
And so unaware that with each day we lose
The right to independently choose

These days we levitate
On words and thoughts of indiscriminate hate
From partisanship never deviate
No matter the chaos we create

About Helen

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.
