Possibilities – 1921 to 2018


Possibilities – Rose Mallinger


Of caravans moving across fault-lines

Names and knowledge cutting through

Dictating new normals, being touchstones

Of spoken words and bloody acts

Of solidarity amidst conspiracy

Grief and tears holding silence

Amidst rhetoric of heinous hate

Of tender antidotes to trigger madness

Of two sides to a coin

Being an unacceptable propaganda

The day when Liberty was unveiled

Of days when statues lived possibilities

Of days that living are since dead

When eleven victims are named

Bearers of legacy and love

Of possibilities, fallen to those unhinged

To Rose, who lived 97 with wisdom

This is a promise that possibility

Will not be buried, beneath menace

Rose, we promise possibilities again

Rest In Peace, keeper of the heart

Your grave, spouts an echo

an everlasting sound of amplified liberty

One thought on “Possibilities – 1921 to 2018

  1. An excellent poetic expression of an important event
    . Religious fanaticism has been beautifully expressed by the
    Poet as “solidarity of conspiracy,”movement of carvans
    “living since dead ” another superb expression to describe all those who silently keep suffering.
    A cerebral ferment for the readers
