We Must Believe - Poem by Steven Federle

We must all believe in love and in peace.
We must believe in the power of love. Thomas Merton

Peace fills this house
as I alone awake and hear
the sounds of easy breathing,
the morning birds, striving
with rising dawn, singing
in the sun with piercing song,

while in the great distance
beyond the gentle flame of sunrise
anger rages.

The birds of Homs are silent.

Waning day swells
with the wails of
mothers.

They cradle the innocents,
caught in the cross-fire
of a Assad's evil greed.

Thy will be done.

Though I cannot understand
I must believe
in your powerful love,
your infinite
Peace!
