Too Late

A photograph.

 

Unexpected,

placed within scrolling reach

of my evening

screen check,

sent me to the brink.

 

Suffering,

brought on by

the actions of people,

whose hearts are cut off,

from the source.

 

I could not see

anything but pain,

at the hands of us,

and I wished for ignorance.

 

But,

too late.

 

I took one breath in:

all of her pain,

in.

 

Then,

an exhale out:

with golden intentions,

out,

to her.

 

In the face of such anguish,

overwhelmed by the baffling

nature of it:

what was left

for me to do?

 

It was so late.

 

I wished ,

with shame,

for ignorance.
