In Reality

Poem By Wendy Marie Georgi

The man next door gets murdered.
No one seems to care.
Not a sound was murmured.
Wasn't anybody there. A little girl was taken.
Never to be found.
The neighborhood was shaken.
No one was around. A man was beaten by police.
Big mistake of getting caught.
Some person grabs a camera.
Lots of money for this shot. Some people getting bolder.
Blaming it on rage.
Others getting colder.
Blaming it on age. For a while we're all so sad.
Then we make a fuss
In reality we're so glad.
That it didn't happen to us.

Candle Of Life

A candle of life to each one is given.
How long it will burn is how we are living.
Some will become weak and dim as it bends
Soon gone are the candles burned from both ends.

In Mirrors Past

I look into the mirror
and stare at this face.
Life has gotten dearer.
Time has left its trace. What happened to the innocence?
