How Can I Complain

How can I complain,

With food, shelter and clothing

A place to call home.

I am not ravaged by war,

Despised by much of the world.

This joyous season

Take the time to remember…

We are truly blessed.

Fear Masquerading

Fear masquerading–

A disguise for the hatred

Lodged in feeble minds.

Isolationism calls

To quell the terror within.

Still you don’t see it,

You are giving them the win

And emboldening.

While we can’t change our sordid past

We can and must change our future

For the good of all mankind.

 

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Hatred

Humanity cast aside by irrational fears

Are men, women and children to be left to die in the cold

To perish with no way forward and no way back

Reality supplanted by racism your justification

Every one of you should be ashamed

Demonizing what you don’t understand

 

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Barbed Wire Gauntlet

Barbed wire gauntlet

Raised to stem the human tide,

Too much too quickly.

Balancing fear with chaos…

Another iron curtain.

 

Displaced and hopeless,

Longing for Europe’s safety,

Left in no-man’s land.
