Subjective Tragedy

PhilipSeymourHoffman

What drives the mind to reach such depths of pain

That cause our hearts once loved to lose their glow

How can the lives we live ever maintain

A true balance that might free will allow

~

Young men and women to look past their fears

To see the value, their beauty as real

Beyond artificial methods of years

Of driven words and images surreal

~

The needle, the pill, the elixir’s hell

A statement, a gesture a look suggests

Our world is defined by knowing too well

Sheer passion will create needs to feel just

~

Breathe in the lovely release of His peace

In our eyes, in our minds, will be our Grace
