Like WATERS That Drain Away

Like WATERS That Drain Away
by Seah Greenhorn
(Poem with copyright)

young saplings
swayed by shifting winds
snap at the roots

uprooted by thieves

Who steal their hearts
and darken their souls.

Look in their eyes
vacant and cold.

When did the suction transpire?

How did we lose them?
Who did Satan hire?

As violent actions increase
with sad ease

and this agonizing
pain wilts our knees
to gravel

as King David
in utmost despair
we pray:

"May they disappear
(The wicked)

like waters
that drain away."
