Photo Challenge #421 – This face in the middle

Photo credit Darrell Whiley

Trapped between love and hate

This face waiting for his mate

As it rose in the centre

Downstream one cannot enter

Screams of history

Planted with awful mystery

Flesh and blood all burning

Lessons we should be learning

Pins and needles what we feel

Slice of pain that was real

Reminder of what went wrong

And that we should be strong

This face in the middle

What was it is a riddle

Always there for us to see

A symbol that we are free*
