When The Young Souls Dimmed

I often wonder what they would remember.
When the dead of the night turned day-
The fires became a midnight sun.
I often wonder if the fires scorched their souls
And pain permanently imprinted on their hearts.
Ran the children – their bare feet so tender,
Yet their fears even greater.
Homes burned,
Reeds burned,
Earth burned,
People burned,
Everything burned!
In the epitome of devastation
And tear drops of frustration
A time of pain, loss and destruction
Suddenly,
The darkness more promising than the torched homes
The cold friendlier, than a life and a people once known now unknown.
I often wonder what they will remember,
The cold of the night,
Or
The night they became homeless,
Or
The day their night was punctuated with violence,
The smell and taste of death,
Or
The day their lives dimmed!

  • I believe everything said made a lot of sense. However, consider
    this, suppose you composed a catchier post
    title? I am not suggesting your content
    isn’t solid, but what if you added a headline that grabbed a person’s
    attention? I mean When The Young Souls Dimmed – Wild Orchid Poems is kinda boring.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write post titles to grab
    people interested. You might try adding a video
    or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got to
    say. Just my opinion, it could make your
    blog a little bit more interesting.

  • Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme
    of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me
    on Opera. Superb Blog!
