Rebuild Human Kindness - A Poem
Weeping willow please don't cry
Spread towards the river for the creeks are dry.
The world has become enraged
People destroying people.
The church bells no longer ring
Down comes the steeple.
Fire beneath us and heavens above
The rest of damnation rivals our love.
We lash out, we scream, we abuse, and accuse
Yet when offered an answer we often refuse.
The test of humanity to save one another
Instead we crucify and destroy each other.
Our hearts used and broken
Yet words to heal are rarely spoken
Chance and happenstance we depend upon
Rarely choosing to create purpose to rely on.
We ask, we pray, we command and insist
Yet fail to abide by rules to coexist.
Venture not into a world unknown
Without first accepting you may be on your own.
It is no others cause to be blamed
Ask for help, there is no shame.
Love to be loved and if so inclined - love without expectation
With heart-felt kindness, love and dedication.
Give to those who have asked for none
Feel the power of your own love.
Blessed be you, the one who gives with no name
And asks for nothing just the same.
Then for once we as a people
Will rebuild our churches and ring bells in our steeples.
