My Mind, My Thought

TO others I’m just the poetry girl,

What they don’t see is the real pearl.

I’ll be glad when this is all over,

A world without drama or trauma,

No need for the protector of truth,

There is no price to freedom, it’s free — it’s there.

I’ll be glad when the end game is over,

No spilled blood or hurt pride,

All the dried blood forms red clover,

No burning bridges, no river aflame.

I’ll be glad when everything begins again,

I’ll be traveling the world with a blank paper heart,

Your past never affecting your future,

You are a blank page.

I’ll be glad when my real pearl shines,

Like diamonds in the sky,

I’ll be glad when this world is liquid crystal,

Pure as water, simple as snow.

I’ll be glad when everyone’s a white ruby,

No competition, everyone shines,

Like scattered stars in the night sky.
