Spring Denied

The vernal breezes of spring still far away,
Golden peace eludes us still so elusive.
Communal harmony now ruptured by vital clashes,
The pathway laden with inequities of man.
Butterfly wings spread wide in spectacular fashion,
Cut and riddled with gaping wounds.
Chocolates and sweets are tendered to us,
But in their center a poisonous blend.
To colonize our thoughts and curtail our freedom,
A surreptitious mission to deny our rights.
To divide our nation and maintain their supremacy,
Words of global peace ring hollow and empty.
These are no peace seekers that preach,
In reality the initiators of hate and division.
They seek only more ways of conquest,
Denied basic freedoms and downing birds in flight.
The dreams of a nation dashed on rocks,
The youth our future curtailed by fear.
Heavy handed threats the norm,
As our people are checked and scorned.
Peace by rule of fear and deceit,
Is a peace short lived in its hypocrisy.
