My heart aches 
Seeing armies invade, taking land
Not theirs 

Hearing cries, bombs 
Flashing 
Deadly lights 

The world reels 
As despots steal countries 
Not theirs 

They don’t care
If lives are lost, hearts broken 
Life torn apart 

Seek a way to stop 
This annexation of what is
Not theirs 

Please God
Please show me 
Show me how today.

What Is?

August 15, 2019

Chickens and Eggs ~ Illustration by Patrice for the Educational Publisher, Ginn and Company

What is the cause? What is the effect?
What does it mean?

For hearts are broken, cities crumble
Crops decay
Lives destroyed.

And
In the midst of this

A sprout pops up, a giggle resonates
Thunder dissipates
Rain clears all filth away.

There is a God
There is a life
We will not disappear.
~ Patrice
