--- Somewheres ---

A Poem by Creepy Swine Guy



Somewheres today, someones died and someones will die.
Red-eyed spouses will look at houses that are full of children
and gaping holes, and wonder, “What am I going to do NOW?


One by one friends will see news reports, get e-mails,
get phone calls or even hear in grocery stores that a
dear friend is gone. Co-workers will push through tears.


Beginning tomorrow … in those same somewheres, nothing
will ever, ever, be the same again. And in all of those same
somewheres all of those someones must swim in a sea
of others who blithely think things will always be the same.

You speak the truth as someone who knows what loss and pain is and how fragile every moment is. I like the idea you follow here of "somewheres." This is an idea that has often haunted me, that there are people suffering everywhere all the time. I have had to learn to block it to live. PTSD probably. Self deception is a great human survival mechanism. Well done here!
