Shall We Find Our Hearts Again


Love of money
Has brought many
Nations to their knees
Love of others
Has healed many communities
One is expressed in
Love of oneself
The other
Expressed
In Love from Self
To self and others
One creates
Healthy individuals
And
Groups
The other
Destroys all that is good
Within our humanity
Which shall it be?
Which shall we be?
Which will prevail?
In the days ahead
Who has the courage?
Who has found their heart?
Perhaps you
Perhaps me
Perhaps us
Yes
We
Will once again
Find our hearts
So full of
Light
So full of
Peace
So full of
Joy
So full of
Love
And live without fear
Having chosen
Once Again
The pathway of
Love

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
