A Cold Blade At Night

06 Apr 2022  C. chou  1 min read.

In the darkness of the night
A blade slinks in the darkness
Hoping to end the travesty
Of society

A raised and poisoned dagger
Seeking to land the lethal blow
Over an unprotected jugular

Couldn’t seem further
For suffering was already
On the platter

Why such a disparity?
Why such difference?
We are all human.

Why does status…
Why does class matter?
Why is one’s birth
Such a significant matter?

Why is wealth
Such a determining factor?
Why does more or less
Make one superior to another?

One plunge
Could make it all better.
A single motion
To have all the fears shattered

Over the figure
His hand wavered,
His heart pausing to wonder

Was this really the correct
Solution to this matter?

This poem was inspired by a writing prompt from the “Storyteller’s Vault” Publication.
