The sand war

At the core of these hearts
This luminous shine hidden by blazing flames of deception.
As it was a inoculation triggered by justice
as a silence painted over desperate screams.

Stained ideas without tension and morale
and only shadows of what we do not see.
These jagged edges of wounds
always sewing their sting into every war.

A sky ablaze glistening in watery eyes
seductive light which obscure the ugliness.
The distant rumble recall what we already know
that so much is lost in each of these cries.

The justice of Money is the world’s fornication in disguise
we let the future become dark for the frightened children’s eyes.
I can see the fire dripping from the eyes so full of lies
kills all hope while they nourish an ongoing war.

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen

    A very powerful declamatory piece which reminded me of the classic 1969 prog-rock track ,” 21st.Century Schizoid man ” by King Crimson.

      Absolutely right on Louis…in this piece I tried to use the language in a progressiv and in some different tone…in Danish we have a word called “sprogblomster”…translated into English it will be wordflowers….it a way to use other and not so common words to paint the picture of poems. Thank you very much Louis.

      Thank you VijayNair.
      I tried to tell the horror of war using some different language…so I did some digging into words not usually used to describe my poems.
