AFTER WEEPING UPON SEEING BY CHANCE A PICTURE OF THE 8 YEAR OLD VICTIM—APRIL 17, 2013
Work, strive, hope, succeed, believe
So you can live and you, too, can grieve.
Up at dawn, read, learn all the wise things the wise can say,
So you may contemplate how it all gets taken away.
Run from life, heap up wealth, go on cruises and tours.
Grieve at these pains. Grief is all that’s yours.
Climb the hill, faster, harder, come on!
So you can get to the top, and see everything that’s gone.
