Faded Yellow Brick Road

In a world full of hatred, mankind has lost its innocence

Somewhere beyond the rainbows
The yellow brick road has faded
Road littered with potholes
Does not lead back home
Munchkins still till the land
Pot of gold beyond reach
Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion
Lost their hearts
Wicked witches of east and west
Risen from their slumber
Intent on slandering
All Dorothys and Totos
Of this world
Emerald City full
With wolves and hyenas
Fangs ready to tear
Innocence from our hearts
Wizard has lost his ways
Road to Kansas
Full of perils
Silver slippers lost
Its powers
Tsunami of hatred
Dropped us
In the land of Death

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.
