Psychochromatic Redemption

A bit of everything, just to keep my erroneous mind busy.

NaPoWriMo

A city resurrected

The Wall as a symbol of the cruelty of the cold war,
A city interrupted.

The Wall dissected roads, amputated tramlines and dismembered some of its main thoroughfares.
A wide “death strip” marked by anti-vehicle trenches, mesh fencing, barbed wire.

And then, it was gone.
A city once wounded, now healed.

A new city rose, from ashes of decline
A burden lifted
The Wall felt like an unpleasant dream.

This is a found poem, made using words from an article in FT. After reading an article about the photographer John Davies I knew I had the poem. Being born in a Communist country and experiencing the fall of a regime I know how the Germans felt before and after the falling of the Wall. I hope a part of those feelings is embedded in this poem.

Open your mind

You’re a dyed-in-the-wool man,

But that’s not helping anyone

Not even yourself.

Word of the day is dyed-in-the-wool: (always used before a noun, often dissaproving) having very strong beliefs, opinions, etc. that you are not willing to change.

Look after you soul

In a world where everything is possible

We thrive for the impossible.

We love to fight and conquer

To make our ego greater.

But then, all comes to this,

In the final moments of peace…

Where was the soul in all of this?

It was waiting patiently to be noticed

To be given a chance to flourish,

To be given a means of expression

In a world that ceased to listen and pay attention.

But sometimes the chance never comes,

And the soul is left with no outcomes.

So it slowly starts to die

Even when the owner has many chances to thrive.

Why would it die, you might ask?

Due to boredom and lack of task

Because we never listen or engage

In things that make our soul change.

In activities that make our soul grow

And become more powerful and so.

We only listen to our ego

That’s why our soul decides to let go…
