Hussein Ali Hill-Johnson Poetry

             Sorrow Beyond Syntax*…   Hussein Ali Hill-Johnson

In America things are now absurd

and “Alt-Truth” has become the key word

Innocence citizens were beaten and one murdered by terrorist

and our President took 3 days to denounce this

All I feel is pain

and lack the words to fully show my disdain

This morning’s sunlight exposed all of the above as sad facts

and all I am left with is a sorrow beyond syntax

*Inspired by the murder of Heather Heyer and brutal beating of Deandre Harris
