Into Flames and Ash

Regina Puckett

A kind heart filled with words painted them onto a page

Turning each one into an artwork free from hate and rage

Each one of his words was created out of love, hope, joy and trust

A stunning masterpiece that remained long after the author’s dust to dust

But someone read the poet’s words and despised his wonderful creation

Not understanding that their meaning could connect our divided civilization

So the beautiful pages of rhyme were tossed away like useless trash

A moment of outrage turning a heart full of inspiration into flames and ash
