Granny's Funeral

On Granny's Funeral 

Crowd
Granny deserves a crown
after a long life of struggle
suffering
courage was not lost
family's loss
family sorrow
as I see a big tent standing
people all over
life of Granny is over
game over
people singing
family crying
men grave-digging 
preparing for her final rest
a deep sleep
that cannot be awaken
although we wish
but
powerless
powerless we are
as I see the discouragibg coffin
hopelessness
no faith
a giving up heart moves
tears show
coffin going down so slow
as if it were a terrible-joke
yes,
she is now gone
never will she return again
nor will I see her
the only remaining is her image
in mind
her body on the ground.
