I Grieve by James C. Richmond



I GRIEVE


I grieve

At least

Your land is vast, full of plenty and your people hope

What tragic Fate

Has betook you

And left you barren

Of love, of the beauty, and of the freedom of Existence

I grieve

When I

Behold the state of a child amongst many

In desperation beg

From want?

From a formed habit?

From a need to dissuade hunger’s pang?

Not to be re-missed to mention

A beggar man

Who refused in disdain

A dollar gain

I grieve

At least

My lamentation is a prayer

To stop this disorder

I grieve

When I in divers places

Observe the similitude yet again

The pain

The desperation

The fear of life – not of death

On strained faces

Stark naked of expression

I grieve

At least

On everything, there is the Creator’s hand

And once in a while

There is a standing ovation

For the plight of the poor man

For the plight of the poor man

For the plight of the poor man

Child and Woman.




Poem by: James C. Richmond
