Back To Being Human ~ a poem by Ms Moem

Back To Being Human

Let’s get back to being human
as we lost it some way back.
We devolved to war and warriors;
let’s regain the human track.

Let’s get back to being human.
It’s who we’re meant to be.
It’s true that we are complex
but we can live in harmony.

Let’s get back to being human.
What does that mean to you?
Is it wrapped up in your words or thoughts
and all the things you do?

Let’s get back to being human.
I really feel we should
as what it means to be human
is coursing through our blood.

Broken | Poem

Broken

I didn’t appreciate the little things before;
Days that weren’t wetted with despair, where
I dared to believe we would all live forever.
Pushed screaming through the door of no return
I learned that circumstances burn flesh
and bone. The worst times I’ve ever known.
Caught in a loop, it replays second by second,
Day by day, wound by wound. Favoured singers
crooned in the background. It was a comforting sound.
Mental time travel transports. Caught between
the edges of life and death, each breath
etched along the tracks of my tears.
One blistering moment. Don’t scratch it.
Can’t help it. Won’t fix it.
It hurts.
