Grainy Worldview

Wordpress Prompt Grainy 2

I woke to a grainy view

bigotry speckled a gray hue

I woke to a grainy stain

bloody murder shaming a foul reign

I woke to a grainy rebuke

dodgy words of a grand-duke

I woke to a grainy pain

deep-seated hatred, black and white

Will it ever wane?

  1. Very well said, I feel this captures the issues going on in our country right now. It is such a disgusting display of how to treat people and I too worry this will never end. Thanks for sharing!


  2. A beautiful poem of a very un beautiful situation. I ask myself the same things and how the hell are we still making the mistakes of so long ago?


  3. Very powerful verse you wrote there! Sadly, this can be said true of east and west, north and south. Where can we hide from all the pain? But surely in the same east and west and north and south where hope must reign. 🙂
