What A Tragedy
by Christen Kuikoua

Of what Importance is money
In a Disastrous World,
What is the point of being rich?
to live all lonely and be sad
What is the point of building a mansion?
to show Power & Wealth while your life is a misery
What is the point of having a million cars?
if you can drive one at a time
Why is the point of using social media?
counting your likes & views

Mockeries of Destiny
by Favilla Mayhearth

Islands of clouds stalk my white, loosely held destiny.
Underneath queen's ring lay pale skin and fragile arteries,
Weak pale queen skin to replicate my overall customs - me.
Proud to be a surface for character-characteristic mockery.

Atrophied I lay in my skin, as decayed veins beneath queen's ring.
I don't wear pearls, I am no queen;
Need no servants, not a queen -
I only seek light.
Up and about within this light, I'm sent into endless sandy rooms,

The Broken Angel
by Nirav Khanal

On the dark and gloomy night
Walking down the lonely trail
As if she was destined to fail.

With no clear destination in her mind
Escaping from something
Maybe it’s from her past.

With all the heartbreaks and scars
She wears her beautiful smile

An African's moaning
by Graham Ereks

Entombed in pregnant forlornness,
Entrapped in life's tiffs, lovelessness,
The living-dead man zombie-walked,
Overpowered by the wind, insulted by insects.

He saunters now and then, hither and thither,
Chatting with the trees, mistaken, every so often, for one non compos mentis. He zombies about, unaware of his deeds, super dead-ish.
Alive yet lifeless, he is but a living dead,
Fully alive, yet fully dead.

Losing a Loved One
by Hemangi Mali

Lost in the world you left behind;
Why did God have to be so unkind?

Nothing is permanent,
What a cruel way to remind;
Not even the the ones we love.
Is there any possible way to rewind?

It came as a sudden horror,
Could it be God's terrible error?

Unfair
by Anuska Rajbhandari

"Life's unfair"
A phrase we hear quite a lot,
All our lives,through the years.
I thought this was only a phrase,
A phrase created to make us work hard,
A phrase that leads to lower expectations of ours,
A phrase born to teach us a lesson,
A phrase to help us realise our life's a blessing.
All my life I've never thought I'd see this phrase be true,
But with everything I see happening around me I think it's cruel.

Swim East
by Breanna Womble

west stars
corner bars
streets i went walking dark
with parallel peril
parked chevrolet
and dodge charger cars

we are the first to awaken
and since the crumble
the battleship

When Grenfell Fell
by Sharon Morgan

Can you remember the day before the morning after?
When the clock kept ticking, the hours went by;
When your tasks were planned for the day;
Children getting ready for school
Parents getting ready for work
Families getting ready for holidays
Bills to pay, friends to meet, places to visit
Flats to clean when you have a flat.
Is it now a distant memory?
