thoroughly weighed

dejection
rejection
and finally,
reflection
again and again;
reflect on a life
that should not have been.
a memory breaks;
rough hands shake her awake,
masking her fright
‘til did memory of pain
will remain.
a heart is betrayed;
a soul is frayed
at such anger displayed.
oh that my grief were thoroughly weighed.
it would be so much more:
ten times each grain on the shore;
a hundred times the stars in the night;
a thousand times each bird taking flight;
ten thousand times each drop of rain
would not measure the pain
of a soul so afraid
oh that my grief were thoroughly weighed.
