Grief (Dec. 1970)
You grieve that life should be unjust;
Some rich and others poor;
Some who are never ill and some
With ills we cannot cure;
That some must work from morn to night
With little rest or ease
While others do no work at all
Living just as they please.
Life is not just, for Nature has
No sense of justice, she
Rules only by cause and effect
Then grieve not if life is unkind;
Man can surmount his fate.
Grieve rather that, granted free will,
He chose not love but hate.
Meg Rugg-Easey Dec. 1970
