Why Should I sing Merry Songs

                                          mere ashes I see
                                 where once were burning coals
                                         this linen receives
                                  the remains of building hope
                                  why should I sing merry songs?

    I try to write about other things but most of my poems want to be like this. Truth is an important portion of poetry. I write of a similar truth in my poem Guerro, I wish you would read it. thank you
