The record turns and wobbles

Scratched screams and sobs echo from the vinyl

But before it goes on to long

Let me set the record straight


There is no anger against you

You were a fighter, a champion

And even though we lost you

You did not lose


There is no anger against God

Who said no to a miracle,

But said yes to ending

Your pain.


There is anger against the Devil

Anger against sin, anger against

The sickness, the cancer that

ravaged you body.


There is anger when I think

Of what you will miss

But there is no anger

Against you.


There could never be anger

Against you.

In honor of my Papa who passed away last year, January 14th, I will be re-posting my grief poems in the hopes that those who read these poems know that they are not alone and that our loved ones are not forgotten.
