Suffering and Pain

a poem inspired by reading a very emotional and touching book called Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys .

Suffering and pain

caused by one too many foes 

where it leads 

no one knows

yet we still bleed

and cry to be free

but why do we endure 

all this suffering

when it only leads 

to more hurt and suffering

is it because we are born

to protect and defend

those with no say

in the world today

yet still some decide

to step out of line

and persecute those

who should no be foes

and all of this for

a claim to fame

so that they 

can be remembered 

by name

regardless of the respondence 

or consequence 

The End
