A Flicker Of Light And Hope

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, we will know peace....

Why must our children and grand children live in the war-torn world? No matter where we are in this world, we must be injected with hope to survive in chaos....

Like a shadow of a cloud

When did our souls learn to cry?

Their fears and worries beckoning

Pulling them to a place of unrest

Gleaming moons in the winter sky...

Yesterday, they dreamed of peace

Now that dream shattered

Lost in the frost of war

Mutilating this sweet serenity

Unending longing for grace...

Time never gave them

The chance to be true

Their sun once intensely burning

Golden and fiercely reflected

A glimpse of heaven...

Now a dying ember

On a gray horizon

Dulled and perishing

The onslaught of hate

Transposed in conflict...

Our children living

In this shadow, never knowing

The love of freedom

The tranquility of silence

Reposed in calmness...

Clasped instead in the iron-cast

Turmoil, nightmares that

Flare to light the night

The horrors that fill their

Sunlit days and moonlit nights...

Yet their hope survives

Easing the anguish

One small flame living

In their hearts and souls

Refusing to be surrendered...

Never to be lost

Not to be sold

Nor traded for unrest

Clutched to their souls

Held tightly with faith...

A candle in the window

On a storm driven night

Embraced with grace

Determined revelation

A conviction of belief...
