a breed apart

I see famine, plague and flood,
I see evil men;
I see dreams covered in mud,
Pain beyond God’s ken,
Horror, failure, pleading, blood--
And reach for a pen.

This reminds me of "I sit and Look out" by Walt Whitman. You both look in the faces of suffering and...beautifully put the pen to paper.
