Old News (Written for Trayvon reposted for Michael)

Another young man dies
Is it so precious, so critical
to establish blame
that we have no time
to spare for grieving.

Perhaps arguing is only
what we choose to do
because we have lost:
the vision to see
the strength to change and
the courage to weep.

Understanding awaits us
on the other side of conflict
and loss welcomes all who love
the final proof of it’s immortality.

We learn to love alone or in small numbers
Yet when in loss we truly weep
we are forever as one.
