Ode to Tragedy

A deeper abyss resides
keeping down the fragile
despite the cheering
and urging of others
tragedy, sorrow, grief
until the darkness
is all around
and there is no longer
a way out

this is all a lie
an excuse
a sad response
sucking in the sick
grasping at straws
excusing the madness
telling us
to keep fighting
for light
