There’s a strange getting kind of wonder
in the poppies that grow
on the fields where blood was once shed
and the peace in still air
that holds the faint glow
of a dawn from which darkness has fled.
there’s a strange kind of power
that trickles through the hands
of dazzling trees, sprouted from ash
and seeps into the bones
of deep-wounded lands
a phoenix rises from flames’ flash.
there’s a strange kind of beauty
in the scars that you wear
whispering of past suffering and pain
both inside and out
they proudly declare
I have hurt, I am healed and I won’t be ashamed,
I’m beautiful in that I’m not the same.

    wow - this really hits hard! i visited some war memorials in belgium a couple of years ago and this was so effective at describing what happened and how it feels to be there! but also the last lines implying the narrator has maybe been in the war? amazing!

    This is gorgeous and so vivid. I love your word choice! "and seeps into the bones / of deep-wounded lands / a phoenix rises from flames’ flash" such a great image. Amazing writing, as always!
