Shed this Skin

Shed this Skin short poem

Photo by Untitled blue

If only we were bones
We wouldn’t throw so many stones
Separated by this skin
We seem to forget we’re all human

Brother killing brother
All for their flesh’s color
Inequality uncontrolled
Because of the lies we’ve all been told

Imagine life without this meat
Because for some, it’s all they see
Realize how united we truly are
And see that we aren’t that far apart

Beneath The Skin

Beneath The Skin short poem

It was not a demigod, elephantiasis of a beast, snakes sitting on head. A catastrophic tree view.I was proud of being alive during carpet-bombing. A catnip was needed to clear the vision. The town was moving out shedding its landmarks.

Shed the mood Blue Open your heart, feel the world which seems so new Things may not change, Many angels or demons will stay down the memory lane, Perspective and change in attitude is the clue, Shed the mood Blue.
