Poem 3 – Him & Her

Part 1: Him

Eyes downcast,

Staring at what he had lost –

Imagining what he could have become

staring at the image of his

lost son

wishing life might have turned

out differently.

Wishing the he was the image,

and his son was

gazing down at him.

Wishing –

yet not accepting


Part 2: Her

Although she only had

one leg,

she hoped for a better future,

unlike him;

imagining a world

where everyone could be free,

and she could spread her wings

and soar.

Raising her eyes to

the heavens,

she lifted her wings

and rose –

he was still
