a letter

a letter to those by anger overtaken
it is not okay for babies to be shaken
it is not okay to beat animals down
as they cower in terror on the ground
it is not okay to hit wives and or lovers
and then expect to be warmly
received under the covers
your anger is yours
not meant to be shared
by those in your way
who pray to be spared

This poem says it so sweetly, but packs a hefty punch. Well done Karen, I love it!

About Me

My photo
greetings! i have managed to incorporate my eternal woodstock nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga...waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. sketching, watercolor painting,poetry and photography are my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance.
