Of Sadness

Of Sadness.

What do you know of sadness?
Have you felt the loss of all you held dear?
What do you know of sadness?
Have you seen the flood of your children on the boots of anger?
What do you know of sadness?
Has the winter taken your father?
What do you know of sadness?
Has the sea taken your brother?
What do you know of sadness?
Your smiles have torn my heart from my chest.
Your glitter blinds me to the joy of this world.
Your song is like a whip on my back.
Your lips spill the words I dare not speak.
What do you know of sadness?
Have you seen the fires burn their flesh?
What do you know of sadness?
Have you longed for the grave?
What do you know of sadness?
Has your crop rotted in the field?
What do you know of sadness?
Has your mind turned on its self?
What do you know of sadness?
Your bells ring of spring.
Your fingers touch the morning sun.
Your eyes sparkle with delight.
Your children sing of heaven.
What do you know of sadness?
What do you know of me?
