“We must discover the power of love, the power, the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that we will be able to make of this old world a new world. We will be able to make men better. Love is the only way.” Martin Luther King Jr.
Stop for one second-just take a deep breath!
So many lost lives, so much senseless death-
Tears overwhelm me, the reality so difficult to see-
What choices do we have, what direction to set our souls free?
Action, yes action-accountability,
But without love to heal us, there will still be misery.
Many at this time, awake to a new reality.
But without love to heal us, who will we be?
Will this moment in time just be, the moment where we finally all see?
But without love to heal us, anger kills possibility.
Look to the right and the left, connections waiting for you and me.
But without love to heal us, we fail to trust and miss the synchrony.
Youngest of us, it is your time, we pass the mantle and support you as you more than plea,
But please do not forget to come from a place of love to heal all of us, let it guide the mission, vision and your new symphony.
