the day harambe died

i watched it over and over

hoping the end would change

the tears fell down my cheeks freely

as the ending remained the same

a careless accident it seemed

the people gathered round

you held the boy so carefully

while his mother screamed out loud

if only…

if only peace was in each heart

then the crowd would have seen

what you meant when you went to protect him

as you drug him forcefully

you are a protector

you showed the world that day

and though your life was taken

you live on in our hearts today

if only they all would have seen it

the beauty in your soul

your name would be remembered as

the gorilla who taught us to hope.
