"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks


Howling wind sings to the sky
It’s echo slams back rejoicing

The mountains escap ev’ry eye
Clapping, it’s thunder voicing

The lies that they speak
And the hearts that weep
Creating scars that run so deep
Like a soul that never sleeps,
Nature wants to break and keep

The pieces of our flower beds
Until we all lose our heads

The waves will crash and they will bend
Swirling us until we end

Transforming this stricken race
Into something without a brace

A crippled species of broken dreams
and our hope tearing at the seams

The storms will destroy what we need
but want and hunger have to feed
And our doubts will fill with greed
a torturous form that makes us bleed

With fake smiles and iron cells
No one now rings the bells

The freedom cannot- will not stay
with our knowledge so far away

Mother, please; just leave us be
But nature doesn’t beg and plead

It’s too late now to fix our flaws
Forever we rest without applause

The time has come for us to go
Through a blizzard of mud and snow

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.
