“Destructive Constructs” (poem / poetry)

Israel continues to destroy Palestine,

The Saudi’s bomb Yemen, with Western support,

The US has Venezuela in its trigger sights,

Nothing seems stronger, than the thirst for more war.

These commanding crooks know nothing of love,

They claim to represent us, stockpiling bad karma,

Leaders should be peaceful, taking leaves out of,

The teachings of Sadhguru and the Dalai Lama.

As we speak, in the midst of a need for global togetherness and compassion, over a quarter of the Worlds population are under harsh sanctions, attacks and blockades by the US, UK and others.

Things are escalating this very moment, unreported, unseen, hidden even further under the radar than usual, thanks to our current worldwide crisis. Air strikes, sanctions, deadly vaccines, World debt, defending genocide… it’s all the same – they are all destructive constructs!

It is shocking though, that even in these troubling times, where most of us are bearing our hearts, showing love and empathy to all, while we sit in the same boat, striving to keep each other strong and hopeful, the powers that be still haven’t had a crisis of conscience!

I don’t know, maybe I’m thinking too highly of them! Maybe they are incapable of positive change, irreversibly stuck in their ways! In which case, they are clearly not fit to represent me, at home, or on the World Stage!

Say it with me: “I do not support violence or oppression, in any way, shape or form!” We all deserve better.

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
