Poem: I Am In Shock

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

I am in shock is a poem about how one believed American Comedian Bill Cosby could teach children morals. People trusted him to be a family man only to be deceived. His actions inflicted pain upon the world. People feel let down as childhood moments are now shattered while he has no remorse.

"I Am In Shock"

I am in shock
by your wholesome family entertainment
thinking you could teach decent morals,
I let them watch.

I feel ashamed
for trusting you
to be a responsible family oriented man,
exposing my family
only to be deceived.

I feel angry
learning you inflicted harm,
not only to a few
but the whole world.

I feel let down
for childhood moments are shattered,
family values are broken,
while your heart feels no remorse.
