Can you Watch


Can you watch?

just one more piece

of footage

ripping at your heart

a bit more with each frame

Can you stand?

the thought of knowing

there are children

who will never hear their name

Can you bear?

to see the shreds

of a crumbling paradise

Please keep watching!

stay human one more moment

don’t stop feeling

hold your hand out

as far as it will go

Stand up for the hurting!

they are close by

around the corner

don’t you know

Bear up and be strong!

for the child the woman the man

who needs your

helping hand

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Thanks for this. It it so easy to distance yourself from a tragedy that is not in your own backyard or doesn’t involve people you know. I remember 9/11. I live in Alaska but have family in NYC and my response to the towers toppling was so different than people who had no personal connection to NYC.
