Flooded With Compassion 


Tensions rise, storms assault, pressure builds

Home sweet homes destroyed

Roads flood over emotions

Overdue cleansing takes us by surprise 

Flood exterminates hate sparks

Subtle change, an almost imperceptible shift

Animosity pulled by the current of murky water

Colors muted, lines blurring

Hostility replaced by desperate yearning

Guidance, a beacon of light

Sun rises, infusing soul

Sisters, brothers lean toward warm embrace

Reliability it serves with stable presence in echoed dawning unique

Opportunity to start anew

Promise of more to come, illuminate, eliminate

Darkness’ attempt to dim the sun’s rays

Extending peace in the world

Power lies in how we respond.
