Two little poems juxtaposed — one for drug abuse, and the other 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, fearing of being misunderstood, or even attract the anger of some.
#Health4JusticeJustice4health (This year's theme for International Day Against Drug Abuse And Illicit Trafficking) The Tempter 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 realize. Just think... did 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 (This year's theme International Day In Support Of Victims Of Torture) The part that stays, it recovers Torture of the mind Invisible dagger that stings Lost amongst all these laughters 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.
