Celebrate Life

This disregard
For human life
Is nothing new
To our species

It overwhelms
As it shadows
Our light
In media’s
Many
Forms

Everywhere
We turn

Daily news
So bad
Good news
So seldom heard

This human
Condition
The darkened
Soul

Can dampen
The brightest
Of spirits

But only
If we
Allow it

    You always teach a life lesson in every poem, with a form that adheres to the axiom,”less is more” I dont know if ive ever written a poem that teaches a lesson, yet you never fail to, this makes your writing of great worth…to those who have ears to hear it!

    …and once again, fabulous pairing of picture and poem!

    Amen, thisviciousembrace.
