Emily Marks has submitted two poems to Readers Verses: Poets Corner, one of which is published below: Change Takes Time by Emily Marks, Haifa, Israel A 360 degree transformation Since day of creation Voice named faith and determination Won't hear this on your local radio station Took all this grief, anguish, immense pain Stopped pointing the finger Who cares who's to blame It's in the past can't change history Regardless how disturbing Change the present, the future Forgiveness attained Why do these recent wounds Still cry and bleed crimson red teardrops? How long will it take For these suffering wounds To scab up And create new skin? All I know is that One day, it will happen. * * * Send Cafe Oleh, your art, poetry, views and even story ideas.
