Poem : DAWN
By Comfort Mussa
The injustice is fierce and unloving.
Let’s break this hymen of silence.
And glide into the core issues
Hit the right spots
Touch every part
Say what’s on our minds
Stimulate our glorious beauty
Expose what’s hidden
Explore what we never knew was there
Reach the peak
Cool off to a new day
Our words. A protest. A baby
Call her dawn. Freedom!
Commy, we really need to start talking nowadays about what really matters. We escape the truth and go about reality and live in a dream world that drags us into destruction. Amazing pice everyone should read.
I agree.. we need to tell and share our stories. A story that must be told does not forgive silence
hmmmmm…soul searching piece.i heard a related message today..” breaking the silence”.I totally agree,there is a culture of silence;of being afraid to speak up for what is right and speak up against what is wrong.If we want to want to make the world a better place then we must shout when its not goyn well so we can be heard.
What a poignant and compelling piece, Commy. It is high time we started to speak out about the ills and injustices of our time. I don’t know for how long shall mankind shy away from reality. We all need to turn a new leaf and embrace reality. Thanks for the inspiring piece.
