BRUISED SOULS
By Ilana Mor    1996

SCATTERED THROUGHOUT HUMANITY,
AMID INCESSANT CRIES OF AGONY,
STRUGGLING WITH WRONG
AND SEARCHING FOR RIGHT,
SO MANY BRUISED SOULS
ARE CAUGHT IN A FIGHT.

WITH FEATHERS PLUCKED
AND THROWN FROM THEIR NESTS,
THEY CONSTANTLY LOOK
FOR A SAFE PLACE TO REST.
SAD VICTIMS OF BOTH
REJECTION AND SHAME,
INTERNAL TEARS
ARE HIDING THEIR PAIN.

UNNURTURED AND BLAMED
BY THE ONES IN CONTROL,
DEJECTED AND FILLED WITH DESPAIR;
YET DEEP WITHIN
THEIR ETERNAL SOULS,
BOTH AFFECTION AND MERCY ARE THERE.

A DAY WILL COME,
WHEN A CHOICE CAN BE MADE …
SHOULD THE VICTIM RESORT TO ABUSE?
FINALLY THE VICTIM IS IN CONTROL…..
TO MAKE ANOTHER SMALLER
AND OF NO USE.
WHETHER THROUGH MEANNESS
OR A SLAP IN THE FACE,
ANOTHER CAN BE REDUCED………
ANOTHER CAN TAKE YOUR PLACE.

HOW VERY EASY TO FORGET YOUR PAIN
WHILE INFLICTING INJURY ON OTHERS.
PUSH ANOTHER
INTO THE CIRCLE OF HATE………
ALL ARE WELCOME
AS ETERNAL BROTHERS!!!.
