Chasing Empty Winds

written by: Beth Tremaglio

@TremaglioBeth

 

The 
heart 
core 
of nature's differences
shows you, 
on the beaten path 
of social media
we are losing ourselves 
to empty winds 
everything's the same 
a constant chase for 
spirituality 
salvations from the hands of men
peace that creates more wars
likes
follows
pictures 
regimens 
statuses 
sex at the touch of a button replacing 
the person.
Poetry of love and hate. 
Love itself 
chased for centuries yet
less understood today. 
Drowning men and women 
trying to redeem the
world 
each other
races 
cultures
     but 
I have yet to see
a drowning 
men
women
societies 
redeem anyone. 
Under the sun
none of this is new
we are 
   still,
centuries later chasing the winds
of salvations made from
the broken wings of 
kings and queens.

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

To see rather than look
To hear rather than listen
To gain knowledge from centuries of chasing
empty winds offered by kings and queens with
burning wings.
