Today I Weep

“Today I weep
for a world of sadness
drowning in the madness;

Today I weep
for a life well lived
yet to be fulfilled;

Today I weep
for those who love
in silence and despair;

Today I weep
for lovers spurned
and passions lost;

Today I weep
for people vanquished
by ignorance and fear;

Today I weep
for lessons learned
borne on many failures;

Today I weep
for those that died
for causes not their own;

Today I weep
for feeling guilt at
my good fortune;

Today I weep
for men in power
lost in their own folly;

Today I weep
for those that died
without a will to live;

Today I weep
for those with faith
usurped by men in frocks;

Today I weep
for the unborn child,
the one I never met;

Today I weep
for Mother Nature
she never wanted this;”
