Worldly Crimes Amidst Celestial Glory - a poem by Anthony Marr

Worldly Crimes Amidst Celestial Glory

by Anthony Marr


In the eyes of the godly from afar
our Earth shines like a bright blue star
whose celestial light masks the pain
suffusing her days and nights and rain
beneath the perpetual coagulating scar
of the abused, the maimed, and the slain.


But these eyes do water as they behold
in the deep darkness of the human fold
the struggle of the evil versus the good
where compassion meets the heart of wood
and cruelty faces the kind and the bold
while the universe unfolds as it should.


But for those who live upon the earth
it is a matter of deep personal worth.
As she wounds or heals or kills or saves,
whether he liberates or if he enslaves,
it's meaning and purpose of their birth
and fate and destiny unto their graves.

Your peom was so beautiful and touched me deeply. I sit here writing this while I wipe the tears of the truth from my eyes, having felt my heart break more and more with every sadly precise word.
