L’otage (The Hostage) - Poem by Aine Ni Leidhin

This is the theme for the abandoned
theories of past participants
finished questioning their own role
But Rain and tears conspire to the concept which is Never Lost.

    I'm much too curious not to ask - who is the hostage here, the poet or humankind?
    Lovely, thought-provoking poem, kind regards, Margaret. (And I also like your name!)
