MEMORIA: A Tribute to the Life of Gloria Cobbs

stop to pray
stop and stare
pain can teach
or destroy

night and day
love and rage
rule the streets
fill a void

six feet deep
a body laid
grief runs wild
children play

set love free
this sacred day
make a choice
to change your ways

friendship bleeds
love is pain
choked by weeds
a rose is slain

rise again
live to die
joy comes
to those who cry

Evolve– Or Die Trying
