A Child Weeps... (a poem)

May 20, 2015

A child weeps for the death of the scorned,

you know...

those who face torment throughout their lives

for being who they are.

 

Even when one is wearing a costume,

including the attire of those extolled,

the taunting grows infinite,

persistence of struggle is apparent throughout.

 

A child mourns for the souls of the scorned,

those whose perfumes of personalities thrived,

yet whose appearances did not live up to aristocracy,

nor to the adoration of those below.

 

And when they feigned the lives of upperclassmen,

chins up, shoulders back, speaking verbose,

the top-cats spit at them, forcing them

to fall even lower than gravity entails.

 

A child prays for the salvation of the scorned,

those whose sins go beyond compare,

who triggered the murder of dozens,

pershaps hundreds...thousands.

 

Claiming that it is not their fault

that they have been tormented,

and now their hearts conceal mercy,

 

 

and their souls face an abyss of anguish.
