Poem - Shed a Tear

The poem “Shed a Tear” is about tears shed at random moments and then the moments afterwards.

Shed a Tear

Shed a tear for the deceased
put to rest six feet deep
now the attempts are put aside
to truly live against the tide

this empty shroud of could have been
still the shell walks the earth
a husk pretending to be whole
even though the best is gone

while the others dance on graves
exclaiming perversion has been laid
put to ground as dogma states
is the way of holy grace

sharp ridicule filled with disgust
in this world that few may trust
celebrates the hollow victory
the walking dead in mimicry.
