Sumyanna Writes

Destruction

All the lies

that others have told

and perhaps, lies of our own

have quickly unraveled

in the winds of change.

No longer

do we hide our ways

and our lies betray

what we want everyone else

to think we stand for,

hands raised

in solidarity of none

save our own

save our own

and even our own –

realize not, how alone

they truly are

until now.

Perhaps we should seek

a closer peek

at history still

for that is where

the silence speaks loudly

mile upon aching mile

of voices silenced

voices unheard

voices plagued

with whatever disease

we felt haughty enough

to impose.

We have betrayed

the decency of our own hearts,

of the lessons passed

from mother to child,

the kindnesses

that we have known

and if we remain silent

as others trespass others’ rights,

we are complicit

in the destruction

of all that makes us
