“All new writing is about grief.” By Paul Jones

All new writing is about grief.
Who hasn't, at least once, lost their way,
Or lost friends, or keys? To be brief:
All new writing is about grief.

Surely writing provides relief,
If it didn't, would everyone say
All new writing is about grief?
Whose isn't? Who hasn’t, once, lost their way.
