Help me understand

Help me understand

A Poem by Mario Vitale

A real write from the heart


We can, but only try
To understand the why
The reason we exist
Or how, we so persist
Amongst the good or bad
Within the joy or sad
To love and fill with hope
Or hate and only grope

they willingness to share

to help but wonder where

love is the essence of our mere the existence learn to shun its resistance

we traveled so far not to turn back now

can't turn around when your hands on the plow

so help me understand while living in a land that is so very mean


through the isle of dicontent have we made a single dent

why are the innocent found to be guilty

where is our sense of mere dignity

some say we are living in a foreign land

filled with kings and queens in their evil schemes

in time we shall shine the deep heart of love from straight help from above
