Marching on

I give my wandering children
Anger to protect you from pain
Rage to ameliorate agony
Fear of what folks won’t explain
Fraught laughter to counteract tragedy
Music to move you to heal
Theater to unite what we feel
that vague sense that nothing is real …
Lost at an indistinct edge made of snow
Unsure where we’ve come from, with nowhere to go
Beggars and bullies and braggarts and whores
iron chains on our windows in rooms with no doors
Fire roams freely, unleashed by cruel wars,
feeds forever on days we will never see,
worlds we will never be
given

One thought on “Marching on

  1. Marching On has a interesting grouping of words and the overall theme of Fear entwined with Hope puts the message across. However, it is a little too Dark! A Lighter deliverance would have been better…that’s just my personal opinion! Cheers!
