Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

Veils and Masks of History

The walls built in haste by the hands of insignificance, 
Are the signposts of the strong.
The sun burnt skins and blistered limbs-
Are the cost of the aged faces of innocence.
Inconvenient facts are always veiled by lies
And mask the hopelessness and fears of the lost.
The lacerated souls and anguished cries-
Are drowned by exotic suns and the shelter of promised lands.
With sunny smiles and survivalist wiles,
The broken hearted testimonies are always overshadowed.
The hidden wounded of dehumanised depravity,
Know that every brave smile has a past not shown-
Every righteous force has a relevant story
And truths left strategically left unknown for a clean history.
