I’d rather feel sad

Never that day again
Never that rock at my temple
Never those pictures
Never those headlines
Never that day again

But already I fear
The emptiness after the pain
To lose you for a second time
First life’s axe
Then its own anodyne

One rose for Michael
One more poem
One more tribute
I can’t let go
One more petition
One more campaign
One more warning
It won’t be in vain
For truth
For justice
One more call
I’d rather feel sad
Than nothing at all
