The Guttural Groan

The guttural groan,
the animalistic moan
from the depths of
despair
when no one else is there;
you let it out, you can’t
help yourself
and you don’t care.
When your loved one
dies, you are in the
depths of despair —
and need to be there
to hide
until you decide
to live or die,
to live or die,
to live or die,
and if fortunate you be
and someone comes
forth your welfare to see,
then sit back and
let the healing be,
just let God’s love
embrace thee,
so you can go on
and, if fortunate, find love
again then
celebrate that one
and offer compassion
to every other one,
every other one,
every other one
who groans alone
in an animalistic moan.
