Poetic Fragments by Len Gesinski


I am not a silent poet

Yesterday…..
another lost angel
touched infinity’s wing
a coward’s bullets
fired blindly
ended
the
wispy
innocence
untapped promise
unbridled enthusiasm
a youthful zest…for a life
that dared till then…
….unmarred
…..unjaded

but
was never allowed
to be…..

she was cut down
on these mean streets
dying
in the arms
of loved ones
where
s
enselessness
and
violence
has reigned supreme for so long
promise
is not allowed
to
take root here
how many tears
must spill
until…someday
the cycle is broken
no one will be spared
there will be no quarter offered
as yet
another
and another
and another
falls…..
