They Said it was Over years Ago #doublenonet #tanka

Eagle

It happened again
How can a human do that?
Pain of the centuries
My hand fits nicely in yours
Bound by our humanity

Years ago they told us all is well
Humans judged by their character
Full equality for all
They said the world is fair
The battle was won
One family
United
In peace
Love
But
They lied
Still two worlds
One rule for โ€œthemโ€
Fear of the other
Blind eye turned to the truth
Indifference to suffering
A world of hate and division
They said it was over years ago

These joined poems were written for Colleen’s Poetry Challenge.ย  This week was poet’s choice. I wrote a double-nonet and a tanka
