To Everyone (and the future most likely)
by Ryder Kereopa (Australia)
Audio: "To Everyone (and the future most likely)," read by Ryder Kereopa
Hear the clock ticking down the hours
until the end’s upon the flowers
and all the grass that takes this world.
“Stop writing, leave yourself unheard.”
The rhythm, rhyme, that surely stop—
we’re looking past the wretched clocks
and know we’re diving into hell.
“Sit down and just enjoy the bells.”
You think this poem will preserve the breeze,
preserve the dark and oaky trees,
the snakes that like to bicker, hiss
“We're stopping you, please don't do this.”
Write your emotions, fears, beliefs,
engrave them onto paper sheets.
Fight the abyss others often gaze
“Enjoy the light these stars have made.”

"I am trying to tell you wish I were a boy
but you mis-trans-late the words and hear
wish I were less of a girl." This is my favourite statement from here! A trans-formative piece :)

Wow, you have been through so much. What a terrible time to be living through, so many lives broken, lost, or insecure because of the war. I'm praying for you that God would protect you and your family, and that he would keep you until the war ends.
