Blood Rain

One more drop,

And the continents will be more saturated than they were yesterday.

One more drop,

That creates ripples that are ever expanding and affecting each of us individually.

One more drop,

From children not born and mothers without children.

One more drop,

Because of soldiers whose job it is to kill and guns that must shoot something.

One more drop,

Because of power hungry politicians and religious fanatics that proclaim war.

One more drop,

Because of angry teenagers looking for acceptance and policemen overzealous in their jobs.

One more drop,

From bombs exploding by the roadside and missiles hunting civillian planes.

One more drop ,

From migrants swallowed by the sea and selfish national policies that don’t protect the weak.

One more drop,

From lost daughters in Nigeria and citizens beheaded by terrorists.

One more drop,

From hostages used to proclaim the macabre and from nations that won’t take it lying down.

One more drop, 

Just another drop in the blood rain that has enveloped our world.

Choose peace over war and dialogue over quarrel

The Abyss

“Out of the deths I cry to you o Lord,

Lord hear my voice….” Psalm 142

In darkness she sat

Darkness solid as stone

She wasn’t blind but there was nothing to see

She stretched her hand and felt emptiness

Yet she couldn’t help feel the walls closing in.

She shouts but no one hears,

She screams but it makes no difference

She tries to feel her way out;

But its like she’s in a “walless” enclave.

Breathing heavily, she nonetheless doesn’t give up.

She tries to be logical in her approach but logic escapes her

It seemed an action dead before it even started.

But how did she get here?

If she couldn’t get out, then may be by interrogating her mind

She will find out how she arrived here; that is absolutely nowhere.

But alas her mind fails her!

She remembers nothing not one speck of information.

Who am I and where am I?

If she can answer that,

Then she will know some measure of peace.

And the she sings … “out of the depths I cry to you O Lord,

Lord hear my voice.

O listen attentively, to the voice of my supplication…….”
