LED,
Where is Dendrite?
That Synapse – 

To my fiery colours of hope
To feed my soul, To feel my soul
To light my soul, To kiss my soul
To light my fire
To hear me
To talk to me!
Speech me – 

To hold me in words,
To hold me in paint,
To violins,
To my treasures, to loves.
Anode and Cathode before the dark –
A light emitting diode,
A neural implant, never was,
To trigger years loves, laughter, dreams, memories, hope, passion;
Pain, despair, angst, anxiety, fear –
Fiery Colours of hope always. 

Womb me Nucleus, Soma, nuclear the death
Neuron, circuit fading me. Fire.
Nucleus stay
Tangle Axon, Terminal me,
Myelin Sheets, tango, to more sheets of life!
Wrap me Myelin, embalm.
Wake up Dendrite, Explode !Fire up.
Dare you not die – Treason!
Away Abeta,
Else I fade to nothingness 

Oh Snap, Synapse –
Light Emitting Diode. Disrupt. The Death. 

Light up brain, 
Kiss my soul, talk to me, hear me….-
Light Emitting Diode.
86 billion. Live. 


About this column

In “Poems for a Better World,” we showcase poems that inspire hope and possibility, that call for justice and equality, and remind us of the beauty and resilience of the human spirit. Through the power of words, these poems offer a glimpse into a better world, one where love and compassion triumph over hatred and division. Join us on this journey of discovery and inspiration.

Take ownership of UN-aligned

Unlike most organisations, UN-aligned is, primarily, its members. We are the New United Nations and though just a drop in the ocean, for now, we will carry on growing until we will become a force to be reckoned with!The more of us there are, the more chance we have of achieving our aims. Help us by promoting membership to you friends or to people you think have similar values. If every member added another, membership would snowball and we would be unstoppable!We also need active members: people who roll up their sleeves and contribute to the work of the organisation. Some already have, for instance, by writing articles for The Gordian, or offering to help with proofreading.

No matter what you can do, we want you. Write to us with your talents and we’ll make it work.
