ain’t the way it’s ‘pose to be…

ain't the way it's 'pose to be

i suppose
i was feeling
like
a lot of people
shocked
and
surprised
by the events
in
paris
so
as is
my m o
i stopped by
aunt bea’s
hoping to be
consoled
aunt bea
as always
listened politely
to my plight
she smiled
and
then said
child
for a moment
i thought you were going
to break into a chorus
of
nobody knows
the trouble i’ve seen
well
you may have
seen it
but
you haven’t
felt it
not
really
your heart may ache
for those
losing life
but
it is not the same
as
losing life
or
the life
of someone
you love
to
watch dreams
vanish
and
realize
prayers
will not be answered
there will be
no
lazarus moment
but
be of good cheer
for
there will be
something else
a moment
however
brief
when love of life
is stronger
than the hate
and
anger
of a few

  1. The hate and anger of a few, sure does get exploited and used by politicians and bankers who use it as a pretext for martial law and wars.
