Tears Are Not Enough

Every cell in my body wants to resist this image. To not publish. To never have seen it. To believe it is not possible. I promised a fellow blogger far away that I would help in words and images. And tears are not enough so I must.

In the name

Of the fathers

And mothers,

Of everything

That has ever been

Held holy

To Man,

Is this ever acceptable?


Can there be


Anything at all

That justifies


Any god

By name

Or nationality

Will question

Any human

By nature

Who accepts



Our tears

Are not enough.
