Impossible! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

it is impossible to believe in compassion,
and to just stand by watching injustice upon
injustice being heaped on the backs of the poor!

it is impossible to be spiritual without being
human enough to feel the hunger of the hungry!
impossible to believe in love without being angered

when you see countless people being thrown
away and cast to the side like human trash!
it is impossible to remain silent when you can

hear the thundering tears of the children!
