So… Which Is It?

24 Oct

This poem was written by me. Now, fair warning: It can be a bit touchy to those sensitive to sensitive topics, or hot button issues. But, this is me. This is the true me. I write what I feel is right, and stand tall against the things I believe. This is me. This is my poem. Interpret it any way you wish, but know, I love all people equal.

There’s a man,

Clinging to God’s word.

There’s  a girl,

Dreaming of a different world.

There’s a mother,

Shaking in despair.

And someone, somewhere,

Living without hair.

Sometimes we forget

To say that prayer.

So instead we click a post,

Type ‘Amen’.

Then we share a post of long-haired man.

There it is. That’s our prayer.

But did we forget,

Or did we simply not care

That their life is so unfair?

In a room,

A baby lies,

It does not whimper,

Not even cry.

Not fully formed

In the doctors eyes.

A heart flutters,

Before it stops.

No tears are shed,

But The People cry.

They throw up pickets,

Scream, “Ban this horror!”

We click the bait,

Help spread this sorrow.

Speak unread opinions,

Do nothing.

Then pout,

As if you did something.

But did we forget,

Or did we simply not care,

That it’s life was ripped unfair?

Down the road,

Blocked from view,

A cloak of vinyl,

Surrounded by crews,

Leaves the scene in nothing new.

In a flash,

A life flew by,

Due to a crash

Because of his eyes.

On the phone,

Typed the words

‘Amen’;

No good luck today,

Not for him.

But did he forget,

Or did he simply not care,

That the car he hit,

Was a family headed to the fair?

There are things unspoken,

Words unheard.

But what did you expect?

You’re part of the herd.

Break apart,

Then you’ll see,

There’s a girl, a boy, a teen, an adult, and a person,

Much like you and me,

Out there,

Clinging to the truth.

Out here,

Fighting for a turn.

Inside our mind,

It can be quite unkind.

But did we forget,

Or did we simply not care,

That all we do,

All we ever do,

Is stop, and then stare,

Moments before we hit, ‘SHARE’?
