When All Words & Voices Fail
In times of trouble, when all seems lost
by Hugh Cobb
& no good outcome can be found,
our beings are shaken, emotions tossed
& our own feet can't hold the ground,
when all words & voices fail
& nothing can be said or done,
we must surrender, not loose a hail
of curses, spew anger at the Sun
& Moon or all the planets & attendant Gods.
This process is always hard to do
but we must strive against all odds
for in reflection later we might rue
words uttered in futility & in haste:
our spirits wounded; our humanity laid waste.
