So What?


Waiting by the window, looking impatient
Palpitation, fear, something isn’t right
A knock on the door, a letter
In a moment, the world seems to be collapsing around me
The voices rise, above, draining my own
My sorrow insurmountable, the jeering
Pointing poison fingers, taunts rain down the old hut
The hearth is empty, my bed is cold
My belly is large, my story will fade, unheard and untold
He died, so what?
My child is an orphan, so what?
The society won’t accept me, so what?
