Music saves It elicits auditory awe in me A beautiful melody Can harmonize with my heart And syncopate my soul The beat washes over me I’m baptised in sound Dancing on the precipice of bliss Drown me in a sempiternal solo Let me live forever With this feeling Of frisson
A nation in flux Failed by its protector Freedom fighters Facilitated by the free world There’s always a price Waifs and Strays Walk the streets Visiting friends In pieces They drop bombs We drop like flies Swatted from your mind A noxious atmosphere We can’t cry
Part of the #HaikuChallenge the word was’ big’.
The Longest Journey
