Maria oh Maria
Did I ask for a purging?
Had I been yearning for a cleansing?
Are the tears you weep a justified sorrow?
Will the terror in your wake be necessary tomorrow?
Will the pall of jubilant falls of upright clouds
Be worth the damage you’ve caused?
Now full of remorse for the pain that you’ve caused,
Will you recompense by unearthing the kindred spirits
Pervading them through the hub of this battered nation?
In realization that in humbling admonition
We are nothing if not for our companions.
That maybe, just maybe your actions
Weren’t at all redundant to Erika,
But a reminder that together
We will come to an understanding
That we are all one being.
