PHIL WINTER Poems
Break The Silence
Speak out against the wrongs! Speak out and break the silence! Silence is for those Whom the hand of death has touched,
To Be Born
To be born And breathe of life Is a journey you have started.
They crowd my dreams each night Faces of strange men Who passed this way before Fired with zeal
Meditating In the still of night He transcended space and years And surmounted unimaginable heights
They come to the world with nothing Parents forsake them They are left to wander And death for them is the answer!
How long must the corrupt And power hungry prevail? How long must they exist Breaking heart, spirit and will?
Cruel Dream Breaker.
You shattered my mind, Dream breaker! When you moved the hands That held me close
</>Human vultures parading this space Death at their side, Death in their stride. Vultures here, vultures everywhere!
Christmas remembers God's only son Christmas is a sacred season Some countries have grand festivities Adults and children enjoy the activities.
Dreams Of Ecstasy.
On the damp sand At the edge of the beach The one whom je paid For the night's pleasure
At The Cross-Roads
Standing at the cross roads I look upon the lesser species with envy. They come into the world Exist, procreate and die without fuss.
The poor, Devoid of hope, they copulate And overpopulate the world. Their birth - an outright mockery
Restless spirits hover Forming mountains in the skies They cannot tell the time They're searching for a home.
Being a victim Of his emotions People and places and things Affect him deeply.

Break The Silence
Speak out against the wrongs!
Speak out and break the silence!
Silence is for those
Whom the hand of death has touched,
Closing off their earthly span,
Robbing them of human thought,
Taking away their winning gift of speech,
Stripping them of hopes and dreams.
Ask them no questions
They cannot respond!
Chide them not,
They cannot defend!
Dumbfounded, expressionless, lost,
They float about
With voices that cannot sing!
Voices that cannot even speak!
For them silence has become the norm!
But we who are alive
We have the ...
