In The News

In The News Today

In the news today,
talk of war,
and famine,
and disease,
and death;
Holy Sh_t!
Is it,
The Apocalypse?

I think not.

I believe it is just,
Man’s inhumanity,
To Man;
His inability,
To love,
Properly, and,
With all due,
Reverence.

I wish it were otherwise.

My desire,
Is such, that,
If only others,
Could experience it,
They would,
Be healed, too;
Mind,
Body,
Spirit;
All in tune,
All in one,
Spirits of light,
Glowing.

Let it be so.
