Enigma code for Human Rights

We are facing unprecedented times where human rights and civil liberties are being eroded as life in the 21st Century changes. 'The Enigma Code for Human Rights' is a contemporary poem inspired by the case of Lauri Love and composed in a sophisticated way by London poet, Elle Smith:

 

Enigma Code for Human Rights 

 

When power vests,

in just hands of one.

Corruption is rife,

as that evil expands.

The cheque we drew,

for our human rights,

will be lost forever,

gone overnight.

Passwords are like,

a bank account PIN.

Encryption required,

protecting you therein.

One man stood tall,

a nation to protect.

Lauri Love said “NO”;

surrender - to State arrest.

We live in times,

where illusion is rife.

Do everything possible,

as privacy is your right.

Surveillance is a ‘SMART’ tool,

‘willingly’ making us act the fool.

Giving up everything,

is what the system wants,

unlocking human beings,

without protest or warrant.

Fireworks Inside Me

Love can sometimes be like an array of fireworks exploding inside you, as you move from interest in that special other person, to falling hook, line and sinker in love. Elle Smith perfectly sums up those emotions in the quaint, contemporary poem - 'Fireworks Inside Me'. This original poem shows just how explosive love can truly be!

Colours of Love

This original poem suggests that there are Colours of Love, and that as Elle Smith recites in beautiful verse that love traverses different stages, or the full colour spectrum as the love within a relationship deepens. From the beginning to complete and everlasting love, we go through a vibrant spectrum of colours:
