It looks like I'm on my way to publishing my 4th poetry book... Here's my latest piece...


Dearest America
© 2016  Sy’needa Penland

At the height of America’s
political and social storm
we must stray from social norms
to not be blinded by lies and mockery.

Blessed be unto thee
who speaks of
Truths and Liberty,
for her heart
I give my soul to thee…

Land of the Free,
Home of the Brave,
for all Americans lives
ought to be saved!

In her turbulent times
let us strive to achieve
Peace, Love and Unity!

Yet murdered in the street
bodies lie silent,
Spirits meek,
now free to roam
in our homes.

Our spaces filled
with no faces,
anguished voices,
Spirits cry out.

Wretched souls
abandoned.
Endless streets,
guiding our children
from their mothers.

Fathers, Uncles,
Brothers lost,
not to war or famine
but to another man’s cause.

As he feeds the desires
of his beast within;
Sins… Countless sins!!

Bodies lie dead,
raped, maimed,
murdered in the street.
The ultimate price
for man’s original sin!

Mere Sacrifices of War,
in Roman Catholic’s name,
who puts itself before a higher God!

Children of God
demonic you are not,
as bodies decay and rot,
your souls bleed unto thee…

Kingdoms lost.
Ancient tombs unearthed.
Upon their re-birth
Spirits claim the souls of thee.

Justice’s price you must pay
on the eve of his day
who shall redeem
the lies of thee.
