Ask Us Why

Amazing Grace, our poet ocelot, is providing provocative thought as she shares with us another original poem from her heart.


Ask us why our life is not our own,
taken captive as our hearts quietly moan.
Our lives stolen without a single thought,
Only a price paid, sold, then bought.

Ask us why we suffer, no freedom in sight,
our souls in darkness, no glimpse of light.
Hands of man wrapped tight around our necks,
We cry and howl, all signs of emotional wrecks.

Ask us why we continue to give,
every moment our fullest that we may live.
A long time ago, we agreed to help each other heal,
By remembering all is illusion and only love is real.
