I wrote the following poem as a personal response to the dreadful news of the truck attacker in France, whom had killed over 80 people and seriously injured many others, nearly 24 hours after a Bastille Day celebration. This continual onslaught against innocent men, women and children going about their daily lives – is just devastating. To all those whom have lost loved ones, my deepest condolences; and to all those experiencing serious injury, may you have a speedy recovery. And to those whom experienced this horror directly, may you find peace as time marches on.
MY POEM TITLED “WORLD HORRORS”
It's so dreadfully hard not to be torn down by the daily news. Reading, listening, seeing the world horrors just gives me the blues. What happened to my understanding of it being a safe and wonderful place? Did it get jarred away by us -- us being the human race? I fear for what my children's children will have to contend with, as they hear of this once beautiful planet. Was it all just a myth? But I bring myself back to the now and I say, that I only have the power of me and then I pray not to the gods of man who need belief to exist, not to the night heavens that continue to persist, but to future generations of us humans at play, that somehow they will do much better -- better than we have today.
