No Words



My spirit stands, mute and still,
in the face of the nightly news,
as if we are at the very lip
of the precipice.
As, indeed, we are.

Which way will we topple?
I pray, towards peace.

    It does not matter which way we topple we just do our part. Truly said Sherry!

  5. It's helpful to express frustration and to speak as a poet on justice and humanity.
