Poetry

Barely a poem

I need to know why I can't take sadness 
I need to know why my heart aches at the thought of pain 
You can't even imply loss 
Without me tearing up 

The soundtrack can't go slow and mellow
Without my nose running 

I can't stand to watch others suffer 
From Marley and Me 
To King Kong 
 

Just the thought of injustice, death, suffering, loss... 
My heart yearns to fix the hurt

I guess deep down I believe 
Love conquers all 
And there's no amount of pain 
That love can't cure 

          - Make love not war 
B.B. John
