Love-Our Solemn Reminder

Standard

Again tonight our hearts are quiet
The distant hope of each dawn overshadowed by hate and ill
Tragedy lurking in the most unseen places
Calculating and callously cold

Lives shattered like frail glass windows
Blood spilling on city grounds
Humanity wasted for reasons unknown
Violence and deadly vile the language of our times…

Yet through it all love persists
Patiently it beckons &silently waits
Till evil is conquered and love prevails

A solemn reminder tonight in the hearts of many
(That) we can and must do better than this

  1. I am so proud of you, Boomie! It’s good to know that there are still hearts that desire good, hope for better and expect the best.
    You are a model worth emulating.
    Thanks for being so inspiring!

  2. Amen! And Boomie, many of us do – do better in our hearts and in reality. It’s the ones who are filled with angry, evil intent that need to do better. …Even as we reach out to some, and evil morphs to good in many cases, the hideousness of hard mean hearts hides in the cracks of a vulnerable love.
