A poem to challenge values.

Alone at home his wife again not there
She’s out with him came rushing to his mind
A pain with which he should be more resigned
As signs of him were written everywhere
He turned toward rage his anger to unwind
And wildly shattered things without a care
Till something tender gently caught his stare
And brought his thoughts to love now so unkind
He loved her so why is he now alone
While stranger dwells in heaven of her kiss
His tears now curse what time brought to his side
Then came a call upon his telephone
And all his worldly reason fell to this
His car had crashed and sadly his wife died

    Nice poem. I like the video you attached. The song “It’s Over” is one of my favorites. It is also sung by one of my favorite artists of all time- Roy Orbison.
