Ground Zero… BY SID


Thank you Sid for your contribution – let us enjoy how men say it in their own words.
I will leave you with “Ground Zero” a beautiful poem by Sid.
Noha

In the blink of an eye
My heart shuddered and collapsed
And I became ground zero.
All it took was just a hit
and then thousands of scattered memories
All flew by.

Shattered bits and pieces,
Shreds of familiar faces,
and faint crumbling voices
of distant treasured moments
All flashed by.

And then when all the dust
And smoky gust set in,
A white canvass emerged
where I can draw the lines I choose
for my new Babylon will spring up here
I will draw up my roads, build up my walls, and open my doors.

But before I can start
I first needed to gather those remains,
bury the dead
sing my eulogies
And write the epitaphs

So, instead of picking up my digging tools
I took on my chisel
to trace and track
my way back
to my soul.

Now tell me my friend, you who can read my pain,
where do I begin,
To rebuild on these wrecks?
For a new soul to heal
Needs another soul to heal.
