Upon Observing Students on the SMC Campus

Who am I to make complaintsOr to whine about my days When in truth I have no real restraints That proves my hearts dismay What courage has my heart gave forth Or what patience do I live? What ways have I revealed my worth? What meaning do I give? What burning pain abides in me Or what shackles melt my skin? What fire walls my eyes to see The grace I drown within? To watch my brother forgive ill fate Enforces my verve to celebrate
