Sand Castles by Aaishah Mayet

Aaishah Mayet | Mar 9th, 2019 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

A deep rage bristles across decades
A Rancid
Repugnant
Monument to injustice

Forgiveness dwells in sand castles
Held in contempt
On the shores
Of toxic seas
Corrosive
To the corroded

As the voices of innocents
Are muffled
In the ether of niceties

And the minds of innocents
Are tormented
By the prod of an unshakeable offense
Languishing
Under its unrelenting legacy

Arrest them
Arrest them all
Accountability and fitting retribution
Are ingredients of redemption
Of a Peace and Justice:
Inextricable
