We Are

The wrong chords to a beautiful song,
The scar on her beautiful visage,
The noise in absolute silence,
The youth and the restless,
The Broken Hallellujah,
The lie in small truth,
A pause in violence,
The fireless flame
A smoke, a dust.

The Calm,
The Storm,
The years wasted.
The escapegoat :
The offered sacrifice.
The Biblical jargons,
The unsung psalms.
The promise broken
The house of mouning
The tear in an old man's eyes,
A scratch on a finished painting,
A dot of unwit in a well learned mind,
The very dream they are about to nip in the bud.

making an assumption, that you are claiming that "We Are" as the entirety of the human race. I could also make a case for
this piece calling religion the bane of humankind. I might be right on either account or entirely wrong and religion being the savior of us all. However it is, I think this is a well written piece. P.S. I think that the word you are looking for in the line
"The house of [mounig] needs an [r] to make it [mourning]. ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

not revealing who "we" are in my opinion makes this a better poem
