What We Have Lost

What have we lost…
One bright star
A man sent here to bring joy
All lost on the word of one boy

What have we lost…
A human being loved the world over
For all of his talents in music and dance
After the scandal, no one gave him a chance

What have we lost…
The most beautiful smile
Pure innocence, no guile
A body that could move
And make you want to groove

What have we lost…
A humble soul
Travesties done to all living creatures
Shown thru cinematic features
His imagination knew no bounds
We clamored for his sounds

What have we lost…
A human being
Always seeing
The good in all of us
But had no one he could trust

We have lost…
Our precious gift
No one took the time to lift
End his years of suffering
Even now, there is no offering
Of a statement to clear his name
Because they are with shame

What have we lost....
A lie becomes the truth
When we choose not to root
Thru the trash that is being spewed
Across the headlines and in the news

I always like to start my day with a poem, it gets me in the right frame of mind.

Although your poem is about loss, it reminds me of what we have gained from those whose memories remain in our hearts.

Warm Regards,

Mary
