autumn

 

old grey crimes of
poison ivy and lion’s teeth
charging death tolls at number 1
all agreed to curfew hours

the bloody hell where all
shall wear metal gears

bending babies from
mothers’ ovens

who would have thought
that suffering comes
before Christmas

ay! should I think
of transformation
where black turns white
and soldiers die one by one

i’ve been there at the
drama of lunar years
giving plenty tears from
the hurt of autumn

    • Autumn here symbolizes a season of the author’s life when a major decision of changed life is considered…life’s past could be depressing, however the future has something better to offer as we choose to be wise with our decisions while we live in the present 🙂 i know i’ve a lot of annotation to put here especially with the symbols that were included…i hope i could clearly say all what I wanted to say here but in general, i’ve said it earlier 🙂
