Aging Winds

during the days of rain and thunder
somewhere a child died
along a red dusty road
on a continent black as cinder

bare hands deep in the soil
digging live bodies
dead in many tragedies
a mind in turmoil

crying during moonlit nights
dark eyes faking emotion(s)
all around bodies for cremation
ashes in imaginary flights

on a future day awaken
spirits from the cold air
from distances of unknown lair(s)
born babies soon forsaken

[-] Been long since I've written a poem. This one is dedicated to the Darfur childrens. May they see the light of the day, someday.

Pretty awesome, pretty good.
Can make us feel powerless
Can seem daunting
But it is the change in us one by one that creates a better world day by day. It's the only way!

We are just a grain of sand
a universe in a grain of sand
held in the palm of our hand

That was very emotional.
I could visualize the scene &
feel their pain.
