Epitaph

Posted in Free Verse Poetry with tags , , on May 27, 2013 by lengesinski

 

Unheeded

The cries

Fell on deafened ears

Conquerors, rapists, savages

determined as damning

paths blazed through undefiled lands and peoples

shielded with arrogance

No mind of violations

Contemptuousness

Blazing forward

How many,

 the tears fell

Only to collect in shimmering pools

 on the cold marbled cenotaph of history

ultimately,

how shortsighted the victories

Names..? Faces..?…..

One becomes many,  as the many become yet another one

In time

Cycles…..Man
