Destroyed Tombstones

DESTROYED TOMBSTONES


Ayad Gharbawi

Rain

Some weeping

Some obliterating

Storms

Angers of epochs ‘cross centuries

Hollering hurt

Yet, unheeding you

Choose to live then

And when

Pressures are extreme

And

When Rocks cried

For you humans

That lie here

Scattered

You lie

With no epitaphs

Remaining

To dignify you

Perhaps you, the Living,

Watching these scenes here

Can think

From what those

The Dead

Chose to live out

Their lives?

Humans!

Yes, you!

Though beaten severely

Such a beating

Scattering your sinful blood

Fisting out

Your eyeballs

You humans!

Once alive with ardour!

Now departed

Way beyond what our

Remembrance can care for

And you, now

The Living

What thoughts may be composed

Within your breasts

As you think

Of those long, gone and Dead?

Humans scattered!

Butchered

Recall

Your loved ones

Once lurid, glitzy

And now, themselves

Also

Lie lifeless

And now behold

These Souls Scattered

With no tombstones

To recall

Their echoing lives;

So what now,

Ye Living Souls

Tell me, then

What whispers

You think of?
