A Poem by Daginne Aignend: "Complacent"

Daginne Aignend is a pseudonym for the Dutch poetess Inge Wesdijk. She started to write English poetry four years ago and posted some of her poems on her Facebook page and on her website.
She likes hardrock music, photography and fantasy books. Daginne is a vegetarian and spends a lot of time with her animals.








Complacent

Close your eyes
The world behind
your eyelids is
comfortable
Deprived of
revealing light
you pamper yourself
In soothing darkness
with a soft orange glow
as an imaginary sun

Thank God
you're not able to
see
...
animal cruelty
child abuse
genocide
misogyny
violence
xenophobia
...
and all what remains
in the book of
human insanity
Sleep well!
