Silent by Carol Lewis

 

Sacred Child:  Living Lessons

 

no

body knows

what goes on behind

closed doors curtains

like shields

pushing back the extent

of trying

to live day by day

wondering

what in this world

is true

what in this world

is pure

what in this world

is

one’s own creation

then

behind closed doors

sits

mute

children

nonverbal though

one shouts

fuck

eyes speak pain

rocking

grunting

twitch

as if trying desperately to turn off

switch

stinging

silent

they sit

in school

walls cement

grays and blues of institutional

decor

deplore

no joy

no play

no love

displayed

confinement

silent

they rage

silent

parents

wonder

how

beautiful perfect babies

became

suddenly

retarded

more shamed

they remain

silent

as the boys grow into

men in diapers

disregarded

caged maybe

forgotten

then

silent

is condemnation for the rest of us

letting this be

silent

as the ekg

keeping track of the beat of society

notes definitive spikes

of silent

heart

attacks

 

 

 

Carol Lewis:

As a student I felt the diminishing of my soul.  As a parent, I know the disgust of watching my son suffer.  As a teacher, I tried to change the system from within and found myself covered in slime and muck in the belly of the beast.  I did my best there as my hair turned gray and my muscles atrophied.  I stayed as I saw the hurt of the children, growing much deeper than my own.  Then the lockdowns and zoom became an IV drip in my veins to wake the fudge up. Sacred Child: Living Lessons is my service to the children and families.  I provide an innovative foundation of unschooling, homeschooling and powerful narratives and verse for affirmation, confirmation and fertile growth of soulful presence and purpose. 

 

”I look forward to working and shining with you.”

Part of our 4 ‘Sees’ Forum –

 

We are enticing, let’s say, others to the same, that is contribute their art!

 

Let’s join together then, here in this forum, in practical ways that can be shared, starting with comments, growing into conversations, flowering into contributions of ideas, dreams, projects, works of all kind, Art, and other expressions of a people who intend to make their freedom theirs, to live a wonderful life, together.

 

There are already many helping and working with us, some seen, some unseen and as yet mysterious.  It is our life’s work: to see a Beautiful World Become A Reality.

 

Our Intent is aligned with Life itself, growing, loving and free.

 

Cheers Lorenzo!
