Particles Of Woe

by Samuel De Lemos

I feel your frustration
I’m in tune with this
universe. I know when things
are out of whack with me and you.

I can tell your countenance drops when things become an
issue. We’re not alone many more people are dealing with
insecurities, financial troubles…particles and the remnants of woe.

Just last night near my home I heard a woman scream and scream some more.

My night of tranquility suddenly became worrisome for
that women being abused next door. The silence of night was jarring-as someone I didn’t know was crying-for help. God help her, God help me, God help us all!
