This poem by P.R. Davis is thought-provoking, and simply wonderful. It deals with difficult issues in a very powerful way.
I live in a world of might
with a future never guaranteed
I live in a place of greed
where selflessness wouldn’t dare intervene
I live in afraid of speech
in which bullets fly
I fumble through such nuances
I live in a fantasy
where I proceed to relive those turbulent times
The past is a dance that keeps me moving with regrets
I can only wonder what’ll happen once the pep comes in my step.
