Stronger Than Us - Poem by Johnny Nathaniel

No knives nor bullets can stop the love within me deep down we all carry the seed, mortal blood from my wounds May seep, I am the courier of this beauty, my shell is a flesh we all bear, Icy fingers sleepy stare
We march through battle through blood and bone The flag we carry must be shown
Death for lines drawn on a globe NO!
Death for a deity we've never known NO!
Death for the music and the trees, for the flowers and the bees YES!
Dear god YES!
Though I have not known you, your purpose shines green and blue
Love I shall!
Love I breathe
Love i see
Some days I cannot see
The sculpture of hate is blocking me
Some weeks I cannot breathe
My own madness keeps choking me
Although my eyes and lungs deceive

Tis my heart that carries the seed

Topic(s) of this poem: love and pain

    If we do not have an ideal for which we could die for, it implies that we do not have an ideal to live for. A well articulated piece. Lovely poem. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem. MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
