BROKEN CROSSES

BROKEN CROSSES

Silent bells toll no more,
No pulpit, No chior, Not a prayer,
Broken crosses cover the land,
In a winter that never ends,
Faith, Resting in pieces, A belief in ruin,
Rusted gates in a landscape frozen,
In a world gone cold, Turning to dust,
Shattered prayers, Splintered wood in a ravaged land,
No candles to light, No sorrow, No tears,
Desolate land covered in a gray blanket,
A lifeless world long lost to the light,
No religion, No Almighty, No life,
Broken crosses is all thats left.......

This is well written, and very descriptive, but it makes me sad...one can only hope you don't really feel this hopeless!

This piece of work is well done. It captures me because I can truly understand that if WE don't get it together this will become our Reality.

nicely done.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
