Genocide Survivors – Poetry of Hope and Peace

Standard

Genocide Survivors

By Talin Mari

 

On this day of sorrow,

So many lost their lives,

With nothing left for tomorrow,

They unwillingly said their goodbyes.

 

In the light of hope they existed,

One step brightening another,

Hope brought by the unanticipated,

Since a life of racist hate brings sorrow.

 

Waking now to a blank slate,

They walked effortlessly forward,

With love in their hearts and their fate,

They moved to the sunrise and onward.

 

Feeling lights of love in the soul,

Shunning hate to those that are ignorant,

Preaching kindness to heal the heart’s hole,

They embraced each other’s scarred dents.

Blazing Sun – Lyrical Poem

Standard

Blazing Sun, Lyrical

By Talin Mari

 

I found you in the middle,

Of a bridge down South Street.

Your eyes full of life,

And your loving words so sweet.

 

I grabbed your hand,

You pulled away,

Turned and looked,

The other way,

 

You left me in a daze,

Making me feel

Like I’m in a haze,

On this foggy bridge.

 

Baby,

The day is young,

Let’s run around

The blazing sun.

 

Hold me till

The night comes round

And we can blaze

The night away.

 

I’ll hold your hand,

Never letting you go.

The days may pass,

But my heart still flows.

 

With your love,

I know your hurt

Will flow down

The river with dirt.

 

Let me show you love,

The love that grows.

Let me show you me,

Beyond these woes.

 

Baby,

The day is young,

Let’s run around

The blazing sun.

 

Hold me till

The night comes round

And we can blaze

The night away.

 

The day is young,

Let’s run around

The blazing sun.

 

Hold me till

The night comes round

And we can blaze

The night away.

 

 

Avant-Garde Writer – Poem

Standard

Avant-Garde Writer

By Talin Mari

 

I write in the dark like the avant-garde,

Moving from café to café without regard.

With my coffee cup always on my side,

I write feverishly throughout the night.

 

My dreams and ambitions floating about,

One word at a time I think is only allowed.

Chaos forms as I think of the past times,

Write, write, write them all in these lines.

 

No longer caring about a given structure,

I am the avant-garde destined to revolt.

The rhymes becomes non-existent here,

As I realize that it is I that am the change.

 

Rise up and create your own destination,

Be your own life’s unconventional rebel.

These are the thoughts that run rampant,

As I write in the dark like an avant-garde.

 

Poetry for Time, the Soul, and Love

Standard

Time for the Soul
by Talin Mari

Time calms the tumultuous soul,
Creating echoes of distant waves.
Time heals the hurtful exchanges,
Creating memories with its words.

Despite feeling the calming tides,
The new time is no longer the same.
Despite hearing the healing words,
The new time is only a fake reality.

With time, change is only desired,
With time, living means to be alive,
With time, freedom is yearned for,
With time, love is the only solution.

Life changes the events set in time,
Life moves the soul unexpectedly,
Life finds the hidden puzzled love,
Life evolves our bewildered souls.

The End

Wake Me – A Poem

Standard

Wake Me

By Talin Mari

 

Wake up, sweet soul,

Wake up, sweet misery,

Wake my heart today.

 

Worn out, weak limbs,

Worn out, feeble mind,

Worn with stories to tell.

 

Enlighten, my dull life,

Enlighten, my aspirations,

Enlighten with desires.

 

Ignite, my curious mind,

Ignite, my cold breath,

Ignite to give back my life.

 

Kiss My Hand: Poetic Fury

Standard

“Kiss my Hand”

By Talin Mari

 

Kiss my hand, kiss my soul,

Let the acid burn this hole.

Leave me be, leave me out,

I have nothing left to doubt.

Kiss my hand, kiss my soul,

Let the lies begin to unfold.

 

Transparency is unknown,

A word, not really shown.

Kindness is only expected,

A gesture, not reciprocated.

 

Kiss my hand, kiss my soul,

Let the tears reveal its hold.

Untie my heart, untie myself,

It is I who stays on this shelf.

Kiss my hand, kiss my soul,

Unleash the truth to be told.

Silently Waiting: Poetic Expression

Standard

Silently Waiting

By Talin Mari

 

Staying silent, thinking that time will standstill,

I wait to stay unnoticed by all that will fulfill.

Suppressed in my heart, a yearning to creep out,

The shell I created cannot easily break apart.

Shadows around me slowly rise to the heavens,

While I wait silently, the years passing hasten.

 

Break the shell,

Break the indecision,

Break the words that hold me back,

Break the barriers that I cannot hack.

 

Staying silent, embracing my avenue of inhibition,

I realize my thick shell will hinder my composition.

Suppressed in my heart, watching it slowly collide,

The colors and shapes lose their once unique side.

Images become clear as I slowly glide forward,

No longer waiting, the years entice me aboard.

 

Reveal the hope, no longer hidden by my silence,

Reveal the life, once lost in the shadows waiting.

Breaking the silence, no longer waiting indefinitely,

Revealing my words, joining each sentence uniquely.
