"My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all."
John Lennon


feel guilty


not mourning


if I made

a hole
for each death
I would be swiss cheese

by the end

so don't
say I'm heartless

I definatly know what you mean, crying never does any good. It just leaves you feeling empty. Mourning in silence is easier for me. Amazing poem
