The Gate and the Tunnel

Disorderly, this world has become
Deafening lies begets mistrust
No matter where you turn and run
Find only despair and lust

Others have lost their faith
While some juggle sharp edges
Few succumbed near the gate
Where millions of body laid

A silhouette stands beside the gate
Mocking smiles he cares to share
Counting the misguided to their death
More slaves for his dark fiery lair

Just upon the horizon a flock gathers
Towards a peaceful shining tunnel
Where everyone embraces each other
Without fear and doubt, eager to travel

A white silhouette beside the tunnel
Heart bleeds, tears flow from his eyes
As he watches the misguided, fumble
He reaches out his hand but no one dares
To look back and repent...

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
