#SUNDAY POETRY - JANUARY, PART III

III

FIFTEEN YEARS

THE NEWSPAPER READ THE HEADLINE LOUD

“WE ARE GRATEFUL AND SAD. WE ARE GRATEFUL AND BROKEN”

“WE ARE APPRECIATIVE FOR FIFTEEN YEARS”

AND WE ARE DUTIFUL; NOBILITY ARISES.

RESPONSIBILITY REMAINS IN MEMORY

IN HOMAGE WE MUST CARRY ON WHAT WE CANNOT

WE ARE BURDENED BY ROSES WHO OBEY THE CYCLE

BY WHICH WE MUST LIVE

THE REST

IN SILENCE

THOSE WHO ARE SAD AND BROKEN REMAIN;

HE WHO IS GONE BECOMES US.
