Read Poem: A SHATTERED GRAVE, by Peyton Hawkins 

A shattered grave
Left stand still
Vulnerable to wind
Yet impervious to time

Forever it remains
A reminder it contains
Of a mistake long forgotten
Heeding a misled sign

The bountiful soul
Walked the edge of night and day
Why be joyful
When affected by the fray?

The same grave
The same lesson
The same soul
All inward aggression

Mercurial pretending and
Unsatisfying endings
Surround wells of
Depression who
Many deem ‘natural’

Not a seeking light
May shine so bright
To rid of the broken decay
Forever the pieces will lay

Allowing such tomfoolery to pass
Would be quite the sin
If we stopped to think through
The thick and thin

A shattered grave
