I Weep

in steemitbloggers •  3 months ago


I weep for my childhood once found but now lost.

I weep for time gone by, sold at a cost.

I weep for the timid tattered boy I wanted to be.

I weep for failing again and again humanity.

I weep for the pain we inflict upon one another.

I weep for the unprotected, downtrodden brother.

I weep for those now dead and gone home.

I weep for those yet born wandering alone.

I weep for the gnashing of teeth of those in torment.

I weep for those judged by man, not God in their lament.

I weep for mothers and fathers, daughter and son.

I weep for the warriors who live by the gun.

I weep for those too ashamed to cry.

I weep for those who must live and die.

thank you for the compliment!

wow sir papacrusher this has me all weepy now, thanks! did you have to be in a melancholy mood to write this or can you do it just be mentally thinking about these things? because I'd get depressed but then you see sad situations on a daily basis. pretty darn thought-provoking though.

Thanks for the comment. That was a really great question. For me, I am able to access it from a detached point of view. I have a switch I am able to hit that allows me to either access pain and emotion or ignore it. I'm not sure if it's from all of the years of exposure to horrific situations or just a bit of sociopathic tendencies...lol

haha! well sir papacrusher I choose to think that it is from years of exposure that professionals have to be able to handle.

That's brilliant
