Forgive Me – Original Poem


She sits alone, her head in the clouds

Tired, weary and lost to the world.

A ghost in the flesh, A child in the dark.

She does not cry, does not speak,

Bright as daylight and dark as night,

A little girl wrapped in shrouds.

Adults cry fateful tears,

wiping sorrow off their cheeks.

A mother wails and blames herself,

A father’s strength slowly crumbles.

Guilt spreads and covers the earth,

Blood, blood, blood – it spreads,

Upon this fateful grave she smears.

That night she felt no anger,

She had released her tortured soul.

Mother screamed, father choked,

Don’t go, I’m here, I’m here…

Time ticked by, sirens wailed,

Her heart had stopped…

Did you see her or look right past?

Was it cruelty or blatant ignorance?

Should I help or should I go?

Questions, questions, useless things,

Denial eats and tortures them.

Looks in eyes, oh so dark,

Mind unable to conform,

Turns away,

Shakes head,

Am so sorry,

Please Forgive Me.
