Abandoned - Poem by Tony Adah

So soon a man
Goes home
Even If he still had more things
To do here

He would burst like a bubble
And away into the thin
Air he flies
Going maybe to meet
His mom Or dad
But leaving behind
His wife, children and all alive.

So soon a man
Goes home
And we think that
He should come back
He has the force to go
And lacks the force to come back
We wail in vain forever
For the man we lowered
Into his last home
Will never again be here
So soon a man goes home
