No Poem Can Console - Poem by Shalom Freedman


No poem can console
For a life – failed
No poem can be an answer
To years and years of struggle
Come to nothing-
A Poem can inspire and help
For a few moments.

But when the whole thing
Has gone wrong
Forever gone wrong
Even the Best Poem
Cannot help.
