the violence

I’m adding this comment post-reblog because I think that reblogging this without some sort of introductory comment has confused some folk. My bad… my first reblog. I did not write this. Visit the talented merkwords and let him know he should post more often. Thanks ~ Walt



the violence bleeds
hate into the streets.

the violence washes
the blood away with tears.

the violence lingers
like a ringing in the ears.

the violence furthers
the divisions that birthed it.

the violence exists,
confounds, continues.

the violence lives as we all wish
peace could live.

why must peace be so fragile
when the violence is so goddam

only earlier this week it was
our nation’s holiday.

i thought the fireworks
were over.
