Poem by Sandra Glassman

Can you be still my heart?
While starvation, disease, global conflicts
Are so much a part in today's society
Why do some turn to terrorism, violence
Devoid of human feeling, Is this the answer?
How come we don't acknowledge more compassion
For those who are homeless and starving
Instead we bask in the glow from our own
Material possessions, Some have stirred passion
For events that invoke sorrow, and destruction
As their result, A sunrise is still beautiful
Mountains, and oceans will forever create wonder
Energy and time should be spent to conquer the
Ever existing plagues to human survival
This and other challenges should fuel the power
For society, to check the pulse of humanity
