Hate Shouts, Love Whispers

written by: TM Arko


Blood is flowing in the streets of Las Vegas
Mixed with the tears of the world
The maniac bullets flying
While below the innocent
Are dying
In the arms of complete strangers
The joy of music
Turned into a dance of death
No one saw it coming
As they took their last breath
We all are wounded
By the universal grief
Feeling the endless pain
With no answers to bring relief
As the darkness of violence envelops our souls
We search for answers
And we wonder just how much longer
This evil can be endured
Hatred shouts while love whispers
Love is always stronger


No matter how prevalent hatred and violence seem to be. Love is always stronger.

I live in the Pacific Northwest. A small community with farms and antique shops. Lots of rivers and lakes and these are some of the themes I like. I am a technical writer by trade so poetry offers me an escape from the more mundane industrial articles I work on day to day. I love music and am a classic rock fanatic. Love good books and stories too.
