I will write the demons,
the silent screams and tears,
the groundless and not so groundless
fears accumulated like mismatched luggage.

No fancy suit bag here
just battered baggage
scarred and damaged

the ugly rumblings of griffins
and goblins, the predators
with twirled mustaches,
vile breathed and detached.

I will write the shadows
that smother the sun,
the smog and the pollution,
the pestilence of intimidation,
the bias of discrimination,

I will write the smack, the crack,
the booze, the pills, the pain,
the insane refrain that does not dwindle.

I will write it all
then crunch it
into a vulgar ball
and burn it.

You've managed to combine the aches of society with a bit of the season..and your resolution is spot on, Sarah. The use of "fears accumulated like mismatched luggage" was of those I wish I'd thought of that similes. May I join you. please...we'd have a bonfire!

NO! don't crunch into a ball and burn it. Too many feel they have nothing to offer, ain't true. Each with an out-stretched hand of love can accomplish many things, with His help from above.

I like your plan. Need some assistance? Ready and willing,
