Collateral Damage - Poem by Debora Short

Today,
I saw a dad
On CNN
He had lost
Not one
But
Both of
His dear sons
Over… there
And I
Wondered
When will
Our world
Have the heart
To
Cry
For
Them

(Praying for Peace, Tennessee

    A stunning piece that cries out from the heart, where is the compassion in all the loss
    This is so heart-felt
    Love duncan X
