All I Have Are Ashes #Akhmatova #poet #societalcancer

  I’ve cried for seventeen long months, I’ve called you for your home, I fell at hangmen’ feet – not once, My womb and hell you’re from. All has been mixed up for all times, And now I can’t define Who is a beast or man, at last, And when they’ll kill my son. There’re […]

Retreaded Spoils #children #poetry

Cheap like retread tires flying off into the distance oh, you so soon forgotten what did you stand for? you could not have had feelings for who would tread over humanity? no one feels anymore certainly not girls whose wasted lives embraced at the slave block the pivotal point where statesmen make lofty speeches in the shadows […]

Just Another Sunday #poetry #Ukraine #crimea #notfiction

Smiling at the signs spring peaks on the horizon I join others in song waving to my friends I go along my way happy greetings of the day I never saw the signs there are soldiers up ahead I calmly still my dread “To visit  family” I say so cheerfully  scream at the bullet’s sound […]
