Poetry from A.R. Salandy : Malaise of the Suffering

Malaise of the Suffering

A lowly lamentation becomes cacophonous
When webs of crystalline frustration
Intersect and weave into crystal insanity,

For we the downtrodden find salvation
In a diminishing hope
Never bleak enough to subjugate faith,

A silent calling warped by the privileged few
Whose power is cemented by fallacies
Bloodened bullion that knows no age.

No, the malaise of the suffering
Is that which pervades
The core of all mundane homes

Where the living writhe grief stricken
And burdened by handmade levers
That dictate the jaded rules of subjugation;

The lies that prevent mobilisation,
An awakening of unity
Dormant.
