one more lash
targets the bleeding back
skin peels away
to reveal steel underneath

the fiery eyes
burn brighter –
burn with purpose
after each strike
meant to cripple and singe

stumbling through rubble
fighting with
broken teeth and infected nails
as long as feet may carry
as long as spirit prevails

to the end of corruption,
to the dawn
of mankind!

this one is about the Civil War in Syria – following dVerse‘s rebellious call…

  1. love the embedded message in this….intense and vivid verse…fighting with
    broken teeth and infected nails
    as long as feet may carry
    as long as spirit prevails…love that part…this is like an anthem….really nice…


  2. I will never understand what is going on in the Middle East. Brother killing brother. Terrorist attacks on woman and children. The old countries need to stop and be logical. When madness and death is the will of the leadership. Maybe need better leaders.


  3. Really really good….just pure passion and courage in these words….I cannot begin to even remotely understand the plight of the syrian people, and what strength….this was a rallying call if ever there was one….love it
