FOOD FOR HEARTY MINDS

Dispersing Agony

The tantrums are just the way we say,

For all things we’ve believed and prayed,

The seeds were sown all day in cheerful ray,

Alas! The outburst of anger has sailed and derailed.

.

Protests stand rooted while at heart,

Standing tall through withering hopelessness.

The authority has the audacity to question this art,

And reverse all said with acute thoughtlessness.

.

The graceful borders have sunk with the hit,

From the impact, the battle against tyranny is won.

The rulers are ousted with the mounted grit,

Raising the fortified borders in the ruthless sun.

.

Storms have come but with a rainbow of hope,

Bruising the legs but sparing the eye of the storm.

Events are churned to flattering heights to cope,

And brought down in time to their relaxed form.

.

The peace of the fortune is descending upon,

In the whirr of new machines; sparking a dawn,

Of all things bright, the leaf is turned thereupon,

And the amassed agony of years is arrested to spawn.

    In the whirr of new machines; sparking a dawn,

    Of all things bright, the leaf is turned thereupon,

    And the amassed agony of years is arrested to spawn.

    love your expression here, thoughtful composition.
    Happy Rally. :)

  17. There will always be storms but as we continue to hope, storms just help to wash away the grime and brighten for a new day.

  18. 1st stanza, how very true, my rants tend to be from lessons accepted in my youth. The rest flowed easy and the last stanza gave hope of forgiveness and future.
