a beautiful poem, beautiful sentiment. ~ Dennis
This sadness knows no end it seems.
Drenched in it,
Soaked into seams.
From unreal dreams.
Ears so closed
To others’ screams
An open ear.
We cry alone
Who cry for fear
Of closed-in world,
No listening ear.
But we will shout,
We will be heard,
We are not animals
Coralled as herd.
Where others fear to plough a furrow,
Remember, please, that come tomorrow,
When your chaos reigns and help is sought,
Who counted others’ screams as naught?
Diminished earth in space and time
There is no time to tread a line
Of non-commitment to a cause,
Upholding unjust, archaic laws
That seek to separate and blight
The human race in hate and spite.
Open minds to all you see
And hear and read
So you may be
A better Man than he. Or she.
