A mesmerizing piece of poetry that states simple facts that get you pondering. I loved the opening lines and the final two had me thinking. I am a huge fan of poems that are stripped back, This was a great example and gets my 4 points.
It is so well put together. I like the language the way you intwined the sentences together. It encourages me to read it in a same breath. Though in conclusion I do not grasp why if WE all suffer why only some cries are genuine and the other's are cry wolf. Is it because they are not genuine people that their cries does not count even though they are suffering too? Or is it that they cry more than it is necessary because they are perhaps pretentious? The best that I could construct this in my half awaken mind is: even they are cry-wolf people, their cries springs from a genuine suffrages. It is still a bit contradictory, but my mind can not go any farther.
Nice fresh breath of energy you poetry brought back here.
Thank you for the comment. The question is a good one! We all suffer, yes, but to cry wolf (in this context at least) is to bleat or write about it as if the pain felt was unique, ‘others cry’, just symbolising they infinitely just ‘cry’. The contradiction is to show the difference between writers, and non-writers. I hope that explains it a little for you! Haha.
