Tell Me


Do you read the news?
What about the comments?
What do you feel?

Well to be frank I do.
I read both and comments,
Mostly meaningless,

I do not smile but laugh.
I laugh; racism and stupidity.
And feel sorry for,

Not me! I am not racist.
Neither am I in rush to judge.
Is important to say:

I am not a blindfolded.
As are most of the comments,
I see come at end.

I feel sorry, am so sorry
For the blind, narrow-minded
Commentators and

I wonder what the family
Of dead, insulted by comment
Feels; can, maybe

Waits for the time, turn to
Read the news and a comment
On news of a dead

They can equally be racist.
Toward us, a stupid comment
That burns our souls.

I?
I wait, afraid of the hatred; tear in my eyes, and a sentence on my lips: “Please act wise.”

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
