Our Community Correspondent Robert Terry wrote this untitled poem about finding hope when we see so many upsetting stories in the news.
my heart bleeds for Charlotte, North Carolina
now it breaks for Burlington, Washington State
and am moved too tears
for the innocents slaughtered
martyred in the name of fear
Spiritual Angels accepting, fearless of fate
no other soul could be so brave
knowing its heading for a sudden end
ends in absolute violence innocent
knowing their vessel’s headed for an early grave
bless them all gone with the past
present and future love we send
