Image for the poem courage


there is dignity still. yes there is courage
sadness peaks and overpours it must be expressed
let notes of powerful beauty explain

bombs and guns can not silence the soul of the brave
the blood of humanity will cry out to the heavens, hear the Ukraine
rising on the winds to reach the hearts of others
yes, I'm still here, feel my pain

in the tall of my back I am speaking to the downtrodden and afraid
music soothing the frayed spirits
for a moment transported to better days

in an instant all the joyous days spent playing piano for family
is collected note by note and carried away
I weep, I am nothing, but time will remember each refrain
it sees the atrocities it will not look the other way

encompassed in a moment...the Ukraine
