The Fortress

Pebble by pebble;
Stone by stone,
this fortress was built up
by the hands of our own.
Now destined to fall
from the distress of cracks,
yet despite its weakening,
we continue to wrack.

We destroyed this once sovereign being
and have transformed it into an idea
we will never be reaching.
Not with our minds
wrapped in the wicked ways of this world.
Not until we learn
what a life is actually for.

Shots are fired
like the beat of a drum
with each thump,
another one comes along.
Raiding and ravaging
each other for their worth
ends only when one
becomes part of the earth.

Corruption and lies
lie deep within our lives
seeping into the core
of our values and guidelines.
We are no longer ashamed
and willingly take the blame
as long as the world
will one day know our name.

The Society Journal – New Site

11

I have been thinking about what I want to do with writing, whether I ever get published or not. What I want to accomplish in my life, what I want to change in myself, and how I want to impact the world through words. Because that’s what I think it’s all about- my small stamp on society.
I’m still not completely sure what I’m doing, but I decided to take another step and create a new site,  thesocietyjournal.wordpress.com.
With it, I would like to welcome writers of all genres and forms (essays, poetry, fiction, etc.) to raise awareness about the troubles and to celebrate the wonders of today’s society.

If you would like to be a part of this, you can contact me through email, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
