We All Will !!!!!

Source

Today

we see

such heartache;

we see

such pain!!!

That ill foreboding wind so chillingly

slicing through each heart

with one swift movement.

Those tempestuous waters rising and rising ;

roaring and roaring

drowning dreams

drowning faith

drowning life.

To each cruel

bloodshed

in each and every war

so many lives are sacrificed

so much heartache

so much pain.!!!!

Each life taken

someone's

parent

child

sibling

or

friend!!!

Little children

in the infancy of their sweet tender lives

snatched

so cruelly;

A parent's

heart

simultaneously

broken;

a gap never to be refilled!!

A mother

never

ever

again

to know

the feel

of her sweet baby's

warm

velvet cheeks.

Those dark looming clouds

crushing

through the sunshine

with a bulldozer's ferocity!!!

Each promising

bright

sunshine ray

splintered and thrown

into

that

stagnant stench

of a dark oblivion!!!

The sweet dreams of once upon a time

strangled to an almost lifeless state

by the

long and cruel

probing fingers of that

prevailing nightmare.

Those nighttime stars

once

reading out

messages of hope

today

so sadly

read out

messages of

dark dark gloom !!!

Who will help???

Who will love ??

Who will care ??

The obvious reply being :-

WE ALL WILL !!!



We stand up

we stand strong !!!

We sooth with tender but strong stature

that

deep deep

pain.

Together we will embrace

soften and find the joy

once again.

Those cutting winds we will stand up to

we will not be defeated ;

we will once again find the promise of that springtime breeze!!!

With sweet empathy

we will

gather and pray for each broken heart

for each shattered hope!!!

We will also

cast aside

our own

insgnificant pains !!!

No longer seemingly cruel;

no longer seemingly foreboding.

We will pray

for those

who have lost due

to the cruelty of wars;

so needless

so shattering !!!

Let us hope

with all our being

for a release

to those hearts

lying in

an almost strangled state

by the

needless and cowardly

vices

of others !!!

Let us help

to untie those cutting knots;

slowly

so slowly

but

so very very surely!!!

Give to the parent

the sweet knowledge

that their child

so cruelly taken

is no longer suffering;

Their precious precious

baby is at peace.

Allow them

that so needed

knowledge

that their baby

is still by their side

and in their heart;

Allow them

to hear the voice

of their little one:-

"Do not cry I am here; I am painfree and by your side; I am watching over all who I love."

" Remember the good times;the laughter and sweetness!"


Let's move forward and entice

with open and eager hearts;

yes to entice that sunshine

to draw together

each sunshine ray ;

to find the strength

for each ray to pierce through

each dark

but also so

cowardly

looming cloud!!

With strength

allow each dream

to untangle

those cruel

probing

fingers of each nightmare!!!!

For the sunshine

to once more

shine and thrive

as a beacon of light to lead the way!!!

Each dream

never ever

to be

quashed;

never to be lost in the realms of time.

Only then will we see

that starlit night

once again

sending this message:-

We will help !!!

We will love !!

We do care !!!


This belief ;this faith and this strength is what will continue to thrive and outlive each darkness !!

Each negative fibre of each being to be overcome by the great and everlasting power of positivity.

STAND UP AND BELIEVE;STAND UP AND BE STRONG !!!

Take care to each and all and I wish you all a wonderful day.

Eddy.

There is such power in this poem. The power of many is incomparable to the struggles of only one. Yet, what a difference just one of us can make.

I am such an admirer of your inspirational and faith-filled writing and I thank you.

Absolutely beautiful Eddy, as always. Your message shines through--we all must do what we can, no matter how small we feel, to help those who are hurting and lost.

If we do not stand up....if we do not care for one another...then who will? The time for standing on the sidelines waiting for someone else to do the work of caring is long gone; it is up to each of us to do our part to make this world a better place.

Lovely, powerful, compassionate. Only you could write this!

love and peace always,

billy

Thank you so much shiningirisheyes .By now I have such a contempt for people who do nothing but cause pain and sadness .Maybe it cannot be stamped out but there is so much that can be done.

There is far too much negativity in the world !!!

This comes from my heart and I do so appreciate your following and comments.

Have a wonderful day.

Dearest Eddy - This magnificent , emotional stirring poetry could only be created by one person ~ you! If we all recognized that we are all one...all connected family...brothers and sisters, then we would each stand up for one another.

I can't say enough about this poem. You are filled with so much love and it radiates within your words. I love it! I love you!

The video is lovely and touching. My heart and soul are so filled right now.

Thank you, Eddy. Voted up and all across (except funny) and will share with all. Hugs.

There is no excuse for war besides man's own inability to compromise. Common sense would tell us that only power and greed seekers would send others to die for them as they and their families remain safe at home. The hearts and lives destroyed can only be overlooked by those to whom the matter not. Hope is on the horizon if we all gather and seek it. Yet, too many find other avenues and forget there's a battle to be fought against the ignorance that inhabits the land. Great poem! Very insightful and thought provoking.
