R.S. Mallari

Haiti

Rumble to rabbles
Paradise to wasteland
Dried blood on concrete
Heaven has cracked

Angels sob, mothers cry
Lost souls, bodies torn apart
Dried lips unable to speak
Refuge they must seek

Hear, let them moan
But don’t leave them alone
Fragile as they are
Show them that you care

Weeks, months, years
May never dry the tears
Shower them with your grace
Wash away their fears

Hear my prayers oh Lord.

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.
