A life, for a life

Art: David Byrd and Peter Gallo

Ward 28, East Wing
Another baby encounters worldly agony
Within the four grey walls, she bawls
Wails emanate from her tiny frame
Penetrating walls of concrete
Meandering through white cloaked heroes
Only to reach another doorstep

Ward 13, South Wing
A man utters his dying wish to an empty room
Reaches in the dark for an invisible hand
As the shrieks of the newborn reach him
She cries with all her might
In mourning of a man
For whom no one else will shed tears
