a dove is set on fire
and rest of the valley stands
gawking as if peace is no more
valued among the branches
that speak of life

the wolves of sabotage
will feast tonight

she knows of this devastation
when the moon has disappeared
into a hollow
she is afraid to enter

but she cannot burn
every piece of land
where hunters walk
in search of emotions
they feed upon

there are some flowers
watching out for light
and young hearts frozen
in dried weeds

only the lamp of an old wizard
will save her skin
from falling into dark chambers
she is willing to escape
along with her naked soul
some nightmares burn for longer.

They are there to show us how valuable the light is and we must accept them as part of life in all it's parts.......to keep faith that the light will shine again is what keeps us living.....:rose:

Wow. You do have a darker side, who knew?  Sadly, the world is often a dark, loveless place, no  matter how much we would wish it to be otherwise.

P.s. this piece is brilliant!  To be correct in prose, just change the only lamp to only the lamp.  This will complete the thought you wanted to convey

my dear Qita, where shall I start?  can we be friends and yet disagree?  i think so.  iron sharpens iron right?  planet earth is indeed awesome, but the world, not so much.   "the world is awesome," tell that to the family of the little girl whose father threw her off a bridge (see Fallen Sparrow), tell it to the surviving kin of the nazi era, whose family members were subject to horrible live "medical research" experiments (see The Ghost of Mengele), tell it to the children, now adults, who survived the massacre in Rwanda of 1994, many with missing limbs, ears, eyes, noses (see Slaughter of the innocents), tell it to the common folk of N. Korea, many of whom have been reduced to eating dirt just to survive, or how about the single mother struggling to feed her children, as she sees others living in senseless luxury.  Of course, to go on would fill up volumes upon volumes, so I am sparing you.  the world may be "awesome" for a privileged few, but for billions it is a struggle just to survive; physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually in an increasingly uncaring and amoral world.  to close one's eyes to reality is to live an illusion.  not that one must focus on the negative, simply acknowledge and accept it's reality, at least for now (Revelation 21:3-5).  

in any case, to say that this poem is about nothing more than a grumbly, tummy, well, I would have to dub thee the "Queen of metaphor."   no, i suspect that this one comes from a deeper place that you will eventually have to come to grips with, as we all do.

yes, you can have your opinion and we will always be friends :) I have noted the details and I agree the world might not be such an awesome place after all, maybe all we have in our hands to make "our" individual worlds to be an awesome place. thank you so much again. :rose:
