Anger, no it’s pain

For the Uniformed few—  Anger, no it’s pain. Both fill this human frame. Watching your struggle. Seeing others pass. Anger, no it’s pain. For those I’ll never know. End of Shift bells toll.

Bright 

Bright, inquisitive they drew me in. Tortured and confused they held me still. Radiating from your soul I see your pain. Moments of hope and their spark’s regained. Living colors spreading about a sphere. Blues and greens radiating clues. In them I see your struggling hues. Dimly once the held my heart. Trembling I recall […]
