It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied with in seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not?"
Why not indeed!!"
EVER SINCE CAVE & FIRE=WARS
TERRITORIALITY ENCROACHES WITHIN
To break/divide down/immune systems
Since documentation,we have named some conditions-
shell shock or concussion it was called in The "Great"War
Those quivering were called cowards /and were punished
Modern war is endless,total and anonymous.
Surgery stitches limbs but not psyches
Tore within,we call it PTSD/extend to rape victims,assault victims
sufferers of domestic violence.It took decades
to recognize the effects of Agent Orange/Depleted Uranium ammunition
upon the troops who dispersed defoliants ,white phosphorus,napalm on others.
Broken warriors question their own loyalties/seek healing from the war within
which is ongoing,internal and deeply,deeply personal.
