WEEP by CINDY J SMITH

WEEP


I'm very pleased to post another wonderful poem from Cindy





As you stand by my grave


Please do not weep for me


For from the shackles of life's woes


I am finally free


Weep for the homeless


Trying hard to cope


As they face each day


Without any hope


Weep for the greedy


Whether rich or poor


Who ignore what they have


Their hands held out for more


Weep for those whose hunger


Makes them roam the streets


Searching through dumpsters


For something to eat


Weep for the young soldiers


Sent abroad to war


Who wonder what all


The destruction and death is for


Weep for the Veterans


Who every day face


The horrors they have seen


That their minds can't erase


Weep for the abused


Who fear for their life


Too scared to leave


Lover, husband or wife


Weep for those young women


Who just sought an escape


That got caught in the sex trades


And feel it's their fate


Weep for the addict


Be it alcohol or drugs


Unable to face a world


Where they feel so unloved


Weep for the children


Who are no longer shown


Only by being responsible


Are you ever truly grown


Weep for the single mothers


Who work night and day


Trying to make a home


So their child will be safe


Weep for the world


Filled with violence and hate


That instead of solving problems


Just holds lots of debates


I will weep for you


And stand by you each day


Hoping my tears will


Wash your grief away
