There Comes A Time - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

There comes a time to take a look
At moments that were painful then
Raw times of wrongs and prejudice
When helpless victims cried in vain.

There comes a time, a safer one
Stark agonies and violence
Too overwhelming in those years
By time's kind fingers gently heal.

There comes a time those little ones
Are softly carried to their fate
Where angels and the just alone
Rejoice in bright eternity.

There comes a time those left on earth
Eyewitness to atrocities
Can finally recall, relive
Pale moments much too hard to bear.

There comes a time, it's here at last
When poems from a hot hand flow
To soothe harsh reminiscences
That only wails can coax to view.

There comes a time all injured ones
Are vindicated, lives renewed
Offending earthly pangs and woe
Much-glorified in mansions gold.

The time has come take a look
At moments that were painful then
Raw times of wrongs and prejudice
When helpless victims cried in vain.
