David R. “Poppa” Alexander

DO YOU KNOW ME?

Do you know me; I’m the wind
The moon, the sun, the rain
Neither foe nor friend
I am the mental strain.

Do you know me; I’m the doubt
The memories, the dreams, the pain
Neither enemy nor brother
I am the subject and struggle is in vain.

Do you know me; I’m the fear
The sickness, the screams the arcane
Neither the reaper nor a physician
I am your anguish; you’re increasing pain.

Do you know me; I’m diabetes
The sores, the missing limbs, the gore
Neither a devil nor your savior
I AM WAR!
