"Permanent Shelter"

Cover of leaves 

Tatters from pounding 

Rain 


 Flimsy cellophane and 

 Cardboard walls; collapses in 

 Pain 


 A cap of newspapers 

 Burns in the glaring 

 Sun 


 Uncovered heads from their 

Dismal corners dashes out and 

 Run


Concrete cells photocopies 

Of photocopies and nothing but 

 Battlegrounds 


 Roofs crashes in revealing 

 Sky overcast with rising 

 Mounds 


 Tired bodies cower from the 

 Shrieks of falling 

 Bombs 


 Hands of those who has the 

Powers crushes origami paper 

Forms


A box with two boards 

Angled; coming together at 

Peaks 


 The hand that builds is 

 Also the hand that smashes 

 Bricks 


 Rows of ice-cream planks 

 Cemented by crystal UHU 

 Glue 


 Just as heads on pillows lie 

Premature walls; a fist crashes 

 Through


A yawning abyss swallows 

 Exclusive 


Before the Gone becomes 

Intrusive 


Fertile land and pregnant bushes 

Wonder 


Why claws unearth the Never Rested from 

 Under

Makayla Danielle Waits: Just finished one of the most amazing books I have ever read. I connected to it in a way I can't quite put to words. It was as if this person was speaking to me, and me only. Telling me her stories and struggles and how this person handled them and how they worked or how they kept trying; but all...
