Saintly Gerard And The Clouds - Poem by Richard Wlodarski

Lying in the green grass of home
Under mother's so watchful eye
Such a damn innocent child
Contemplates life in puffy clouds

Spellbound he truly sees angels
Smiling and laughing and playing
Can't understand why he's not there
So much suffering just not fair

Topic(s) of this poem: angels , meditation, pain, painful, saint, suffering

    Thank you so much, Carl! I really want readers to be moved by the Kerouac Series. Both Jack and Gerard had suffered so much!
