Hello All from Massachusetts USA. I would like to Thank everyone at Dailywisdomwords.com for nominating my poem, ‘An Open Book’for the winning poem in the Fall 2020 Poetry Contest ✍📚 I am honored and appreciate being selected. Thank you all so much…
An Open Book
I write the society of a world gone wrong
The hate, the crimes and the lives now gone.
I write the reality the whole world reads
The scars, the wounds, the pain that bleeds.
I write the melody the whole world sings
The laughter, the tears, the simple things.
I write the love in a world gone cold
The dreams, the wishes and stories untold.
I write the words I placed in a poem
For all the world we call our home.
I read the society where lies belong
Shame, secrets and a shattered song.
I read the reality this whole world needs
The survivor’s in courage forever now leads.
I read the melody the whole world brings
The freedom of birds, queens and kings.
I read the love this world does hold
Hidden in cracks, waiting to unfold.
I read the words I placed in this poem
From my heart and straight to your home.
