26 June UN Observances

Two little poems, one for drug abuse, and one, for victims of torture

As today is the United Nations International Day Against Drug Abuse And Illicit Trafficking, as well as United Nations International Day In Support Of Victims Of Torture, I decided to write these two little poems. I always fear to write about these serious issues, for perhaps, I might have accidentally written things that might touch sensitive souls, or even attract the anger of some. For these two poems, I tried a new way of juxtaposing.

#Health4JusticeJustice4health (This year theme)

Drugs
A parasite
Devastating, tearing, possessing
That body that mind that life
Imprisonment.

Drugs
The illusion of
Feeling, ascending, escaping
Something somewhere everywhere
Falsity.

Drugs
Stop you from
Sensing, appreciating, envisioning
That existence of yours
Slow-death.

Drugs
Are invisible chains
Imprisoning, hurting, digressing
The one you are and ought to be
Perdition.

And what if you, beautiful human being, you were tempted to take that scourge of destruction so as to never realise…

Just Think… Just Think You, always had the answer…
To the magnificence of your core Where the tempter has always been around
For your downfall…

From Horror To Healing (UN’s Theme)

Torture of the mind
Invisible dagger that stings
Lost amongst all these laughter
A part of the inside that dies miserably

But that part that stays
it recovers
That part that has always been
Before the experience of horror
It helps at will to heal

I really don’t know more what to say
Than that Of being gentle with yourself…
