If you...


If you look....
And find sorrow,
-It is because I sorrow.
for brothers and sisters lost,
for children slaughtered,
for fathers and mothers gone forever from my life.

If you feel....
And feel pain,
-It is because my heart is in pain.
As I remember days long gone,
With brothers and sisters lost,
With those children slaughtered,
And with fathers and mothers gone forever from my life.

If you look....
And find anger,
-It is because I am angry.
For brothers and sisters lost,
For children slaughtered,
For fathers and mothers gone forever from my life.

If you feel...
And feel confusion,
-It is because I am confused,
At why man caused
those brothers and sisters to be lost,
those children to be slaughtered,
those fathers and mothers to be gone forever from my life..

If you look...
And find wisdom,
-It is because I am wise,
From the knowledge
for brothers and sisters lost,
for children slaughtered,
for fathers and mothers gone forever from my life.

If you feel....
And find yourself,
-it is beacuse we are not so different.
We've lost brothers and sisters...
We've lost our children...
We've lost our fathers and mothers..

If you look,
And find your soul,
-Then carry me inside of you.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
