Weakness Is Not A Poem

Poem By Shalom Freedman

WEAKNESS IS NOT A POEM

Weakness is not a poem-
Nor is sickness-
Pain too, no poem.
All the suffering
A single human being must endure
No poem.

There is Hell in this world
And some people live it
Every day of their lives.

It is no poem
To see another human being
Suffering.

I Must Continue To Write

There will always be another poem
And with that poem- hope
However absurd-
So even if I despair
