Pale Green-Pitch Black, A Poem

Updated on December 30, 2012

This poem is related to a field trip I experienced in Eastern Europe, 2012

I searched a way

To relieve the broken hearted

However no sight of a plague

That could be cured...

Souls nailed to death

Pale green, pitch black

Far as the eye can see

There are popular hearts

Playing the trumpet

Thumping out lies

Belly laughing...

Towards the kind spirited

Pale green, pitch black

Their mind is cracked

From disfunction, neglecting

They control each lie

With their wallets...

They smile with their ribs

Pale green, pitch black

Villagers like book shelves

You cannot read a book by it`s cover

Piled dirty history, shame

Who wants to know what has past?

No time for what was, is or will be

Pale green, pitch black

No one wants to know your story

Yet, they may cry for a motive...

Perhaps you have some gold

Locked down in themselves

Who wants to watch a trailer drama

Over, and over again?

Just mute, or turn off, your better off

Pale green, pitch black, a society gone fungi.

      Fascinating poetry with descriptive symbolism. I am reminded of societies hardened hearts when reading this.

      Nice to see you again GypsyRoseLee...I`m a happy little creature :) except when it comes to implementing projects in rural regions, the human suffering, injustice, violence can rob my joy in minutes. Hope this year brings many opportunities to see my efforts making a difference in the lives of disadvantaged women.

      We are releasing a few ebooks & a music EP early this year, wish us luck! Wish you an inspirational week

      Very powerful imagery, in both words and visuals arts. It is disturbing, as truth usually is, Meg. Thank you for shedding your light. Wishing you a safe, healthy New Year.
