Black Dove


Published by Family Friend Poems October 2015 with permission of the Author.

There sat a black dove,
dark as night,
doing wrong,
though knowing right.

Its nature is bad
but not by choice.
How would you feel
with an unheard voice?

It hates the world
surrounded by love.
Its only wish
is to be a white dove.

A symbol of hope, honesty,
peace, and devotion.
It just wants to be happy
and escape this commotion.

Instead, all the world does
is turn away,
and every silver lining
fades to gray.

Expected to be seen
but not heard
is a painful thing
to this lonely bird.

A black dove
sits and cries and sings
as it recollects
all the heartache life brings.
