Justifiable Loss

Poetry By: Ohioguy

Random posting, random topic. I tried to keep it short and simple to get my point across, though that's not usually my thing. If you like it, check out my other poems!

Dried up cracks in the foundation of our nature,
like a slap to the face once you see the whole picture.
A necessary component of the undying fixture of false belief,
it's just a brief relief from your insecurities and grief.

The leaves turning red and falling to the ground, like spilt blood.
It's a flood, mixed into the mud without ever making a sound.
But you can hear them screaming as spring rolls around,
begging that their newly grown brethren would not suffer the same beat-down.

They realize that one loss does not justify another, but it's too late.
If only they hadn't accepted their fate and gave up their ability to communicate.
