The Base of History #history #NWCU #WWUC #photography #poetry


Beneath the feet

there is a wall

hidden from most

reflecting the fall

***

Once children were taught

words from the heart

when they did pass

is where it starts

****

kept out of sight

tucked under the wall

there is a sickness

unbeknownst to us all

The word is Hate

it starts deep within

but as it lingers

it grows into sin

***

like a plant

that like a weed must grow

it chokes out all reason

no goodness to show

***

there peaking in the shadows

beneath cruel HATE

it’s lingering- WAR

by now it’s too late

for hate as it blossoms

will weave and will spin

diseased delusion

civilization’s end

This completed work consists of poetry and photography. I hope you feel the statement that is in response to the Wednesday Wake Up Call at New World Creative Union. The artist is asked to ponder: ” 1000 years back…1000 years forward….can you feel the weight of our evolution? Are we now prepared to learn from the lessons? Where do we go from here? Our planet is dying, our societies are struggling, the line between the have’s and have-not’s grows ever more defined. How did this happen…how do we change? ” Thanks to Natasha Head for the inspiration.

  1. Leslie…the words and images combine for a fantastic and powerful presentation. The root of it all…and we have the power to change it. We so doubt ourselves and the strength of our collective voices…I think this is a wonderful call to action…for US to make the change.
