Trade Places… [POEM]

It’s not fair
that you’ve gone
since a long time ago
with no home
that no one heard your cry
or felt your need
that no one fed your spirit
or believed
that they walk by
and ignore your cup
that they fodder your faith
abhor your luck

it is impossible to imagine
uncanny to perceive
how dare they judge your life
why must they not concede
they read your sign in jest
they offer up of guilt
having no idea your genius
or the life behind you’ve left
the rules that don’t apply
the expectation you can forego
they are too busy slaves to a system
for a freedom they will never know

the audacity of the crowds
those foolish in the wind
thinking you to be the pity
that your treasure doesn’t spend
eyes that peer into the soul
for a hint of what is sure
they posture to heal your sickness
when in truth they need a cure

And it is not fair
that you can suffer
the guilt of knowing best
while they mock your juxtaposition,
you loathe their homelessness.

As it relates to God… [POEM]

No night came suddenly
No day unexpected
No hour unknown
No minute rejected

as it relates to God

No soul ever unaccounted
No heart taken for granted
No spirit lost for eternity
No mind evilly planted

as it relates to God

No child stricken with hatred
No man purposed to strain
No woman obligated to hurt
No family destined to pain

as it relates to God

No prejudice with cause
No slaughter with merit
No consideration for injustice
No thought done careless

as it relates to God

No reason to ponder
No lesson to doubt
No answer to question
No gesture without,

as it relates to God.
