Rumblings of explosive thunder to come
Rolling rivers of liquid pain beginning what will be done
Humbled to thin bones for minor meager meals via soul mutiny as manifested
Muscles torn to shred as skin becomes weak to the sun
Hugging my youngest in the cold night knowing no victory is won
Tattered cloth flowing in the wind walking a winding road bested
Coughs of flame begin from young lungs set ablaze by life
Poisoned lungs never breathing freedom of youth being suckled by strife
In my arms the death of hope freezing a fragile body born fragile never reaching maturity
Boulders of conflict crushing our liberation as falling caves of ice
Drowning in the cold waters of conflict melting in the crucible of life
Maternity & Paternity transcendentally crushed by the blinding ignorance of eternity
Like fine dust the youth are taken slowly into the vicious current of wind
Slipping through our fingers the future of ALL
Never seeing the ending for being trapped in a beginning like endless fall
Crashes of thunder as rains of conflict abound between us never seeing the coming whirlwind
If not peace then lips of poison give the dates kisses malevolent
A metaphysical bullet ripping through the hearts of all is ignorance
The sharpest blade piercing our souls is human petulance
Let those with a MIND to perceive and consciousness to understand be a manifestation benevolent
**Dante Style Petrarchan Sonnet consists of two sestets & two quatrains. As most of you know sonnets are my favorite style to write in. Please try writing one if you have never had the pleasure.
