SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY, A POEM

My consistent readers,

My mind has been in a whirl since the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary.
I cannot imagine the thoughts going through the tiny children’s heads as they waited to be slaughtered.

I grieve for those little lost souls and for their parents.

For what it is worth, I wrote this poem.

SUFFER THE ANGELS

The devil entered
And twenty angels
Destined for grace
Were slaughtered.

The devil entered
And twenty angels
Destined full lives
Were gone.

The devil entered
And still we doubt
The strength
Of the devil’s tool.

Until we know the devil
And the strength his tool possesses,
More angels await his calling,
We are all the devil’s work.

A POEM REFLECTING THE AGING PROCESS

My consistent readers,

I guess age and the thoughts of what comes next have been occupying my mind of late.
I’ve put some of these thoughts into poems in the past. Here is another.

WHAT IS LOST
AND FOUND
WHEN GROWING OLD

While growing old
Youth’s memories persist
Within our feeble minds.

Each passing day
With sorrow we find friends
Once known are gone.

Their passing slow
But all too rapid
They whisper their good-byes.

Each day brings suffering
A new pain found
A companion for that day.

And no one knows
The silent dread
That has come that day to stay.

But life is life
We do what we can
And use what we are given.

Hoping the world
Will benefit
From the fact that we were living.

GONE TOO SOON

My consistent readers,

My sister died last year.
Today is her birthday.

For Judy

We spend our time
Do what we do
And then depart.
