Ignited (Poem)

Ignited

Pent up dust in a vacuum
Volcanoes ready to erupt
An explosion of fireworks
Mushroom clouds fill sky

Violent debris litters wide
Unbiased, pure and truthful
Cheers from a sober crowd
No loss is too great to bare

Streets of rubble and disaster
Homes empty of life and love
War reaches every town corner
Survival is a rigged lottery

Once strong and wise, gone
Little feet retreat when beat
Power lines from dead source
Lights go unlit in the dark

Broken building blocks stack
The debt of past mistakes
Future carries the burdens
Beginnings come full circle

Find this side or the other
Doorways jam under traffic
In between cause and effect
Exploding, stuck on repeat
