Cry Of The Sick - Poem by Melvina Germain

Suffering…the hum drum sound of
cold..blue…hospital corridors.
Echoes of pain…strain…crying out…
…writhing…exhausted…depressed.’
Frustr ation in the mix…wailing..
tears pour like rain…anxiety, ,
hopelessness….defeated….scream.
Help me Lord….take me now…let
me die……why? ? ? Tired…distraught
helpless…rejected…..tossed away
by society…leaves me broken…..
trash…vexed…intimidated…sick..
Mi nd…body…soul…crying out in
pain…blue…stained with distrust..
Needy…loathed by the rich….
Scorned by the poor…cast out by
society…..reaching for Heavens
door….death calls my name..
suicide is my game.
Lights…hot bright lights,
voices screaming voices,
calling my name in the night.
Come back…..come back.
Come live again.
