Day 24 – April Poem A Day, 2021

Write a question poem – went a little dark today but some days its hard to see the good in humanity.

Listen up
I have enough questions
To fill a cup
Overflowing really
Because I’ve lost count
Of night whispers

How is the world
So kind as to have a
Perfect stranger lay
Their life on the line
For another

We cheer and serenade
A worldwide party
From our balconies
Somewhere between
A high note
Melody and harmony
My pleas collide
With the chorus

Notes trailing off
Into emptiness
How are we the same
planet
Lifting a shoulder
In a careless shrug
As another of the fallen
Takes their last breath
