Reena’s Exploration Challenge #113
Welcome to yet another brilliant week!
I’m still reeling under the magic of multiple responses to multiple prompt words. I’m more than happy to see the creativity that flowed in, encompassing the prompt words, and intermittent spaces being filled up with brilliance.
I can’t resist the temptation to repeat it at least once. So, here is a set of images. Choose one or more or all, and create magic once again.
I am using these two images for my poem.
Seal your lips with a pretty smile
Let no words of censure escape them
Stay quiet and bear all that is dealt to you
It is a women’s place to absorb all the abuse
As for me, you know I don’t see so well
My myopia makes it hard for me to discern
The harsh realities of life often escape my notice
I just try to look inwards and here I see no evil
The death of innocence and birth of cruelty comes together
One dies when the other is born out of human apathy
Staying quiet when it is time to speak up can do so much harm
Not seeing what is wrong right under our noses can destroy
Tear away this gag of silence and speak up your mind
Throw away these myopic blinds and see how wrong
The world has become when people are turning a blind eye
To all that injustice, hatred, and bloodshed going around us
