LOSS & HOPE @ataraxypoetry

Overwhelmed by past and impending

Tragedies and doom

Dread and gloom

Unsettle and grip


Shallow breathing

Tense body

There’s so much suffering

There could be fewer dying

Continue organizing

And helping one another


There is always hope

And love

Much love to all

I'm so very sorry

For loss

I wish I could fill all our empty spots

Connect our hearts and heal us

I wish I could save those in need

I wish I weren't

Feeling powerless

I offer mere words

May time give us scars


And lessons

But allow us to continue

So we may fill our hearts

With new joys

And life


Not sleeping well

With time

Life could be



In feelings of hope

And tranquillity
