ANOTHER DARK DAY


ANOTHER DARK DAY

From the arrays in the sky
eclipses another bright star
A curtain is drawn
A life, to an abrupt end
A flower once blossomed
now withers away.

Far away in Pakistan
A lone voice is cut in its prime
A life which stood against oppresion
A life which stood for justice
A life which stood for equality
A life which stood for democracy
Snuffed out in daylight

How bizzare
How cowardly
How cruel
This life now withers away

Adieu Benazir Bhutto
A life that counts
Better to die a hero
Than live an unsung life

The world mourns you
In our hearts, you live on
Till we meet again
Good night Mama

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
