But Not For You

You may judge me when

you’ve been sequestered

and immobilized by fear

With every thought a plea

for welfare or survival


You may tell me that

this too shall pass if you

have made the journey

safely out of crushing darkness

to a place of sanctuary


You may hear this if you feel

your heart could break at

any moment for the ones

who suffer thus without relief

but not for you

Gosh...we've come a long way, huh?

Wow...

Great poem! As usual...
