Tears - Emotion
Tears - Emotion (Dedicated to Allen Ginsberg) (11-22-16)
Lately, I've been brought to tears--
imprints of stories emotion.
I received a letter from MADACC,
they were asking for money
to help cats & dogs find homes--
even included a story.
There was a picture of a seven y/o female pit-bull,
she'd been abused and used for breeding
That lead to incontinence--
for the rest of her life, she'll be in diapers.
With tears in eyes, I willingly fished
the only two-dollar bills out of my savings,
placing them in the provided return envelope
and mailing it back promptly.
My dog was sitting on my lap
when I read the letter.
It made me sad to think,
where he'd be without me (His Daddy).
ABC's Nightline was on TV
telling the story of a guy named Pat.
He was a fireman who'd been severely burned,
luckily, he received a face transplant.
He had regained sight, regrown hair, and
even met the mother of the face he now wears.
She kissed his forehead, saying softly "thank-you" and "it's yours."
Emotional to watch, honor and joy to of felt a part of.
Juju Chang's strong, professional demeanor on camera shines through.
Stronger than I'll ever be choked-up & teary-eyed, just watching though.
