Trust In Words

Do not trust those

who aim for power 

over peace,

they are the ones

to whom we owe

all our pain,

all our distaste 

for such a name.

Do not listen

as they try to

fill up our minds

with empty chatter,

the magazine articles 

that rarely ever matter,

the promise of a

new world,

a better world;

a lie.

Listen to us,

the people who

sit behind their televisions

and let out a cry;

we are the voices 

of reason,

the voices of hope.

Do not listen to them,

they who do not know

our faces,

our stories,

our lives,

the patterns that collide 

onto our skin,

our sins.

Do not trust those

who live and breathe

the thought of war

as if, it’s the only thing

keeping them alive.
