Everything Colorless

Edited by:  Randy Sturridge

Clones of shattered youth are born

Evacuated shells of previous generations

Emotionless days and vacant dinner tables

Hard tiled floors of a cultureless nation

Perpetuating activism fighting for others

Bi-products of war and deaths of mothers

Speeches of yesterday drown out the skies

Propelling future hopes of past mentioned times

Everything colorless with senses so plain

Society forgotten with faith in nation deranged

Clones built on promises of better days

Slowly accepting all these shades of grey

Randy- another excellent write. Theme is universal and well-stated. Lines work well individually and in relation to the entire write. But what I like most is, especially in a poem such themed, that you kept a mono-toned voice throughout the poem- perfect pacing for this type of piece- You've been doing a great job layering and constructing your poems beneath the surface lately. When I first started reading your work I liked the pieces but they weren't nearly as layered or detailed structurally as they are now. Great job-love seeing an evolution in progress:)
