Where is Love

by Morgan

Why all this darkness?
Why all this fear?
Why all the hateful rumours and unjustified Lies?
Why all the torment, ugliness, cruelty and loathing?

Why am I alone?
Why am I neglected?
Why am I lost in this sea of doubt and anxiety?
Why am I overwhelmed by sadness and despair?

Where is God in All of this?
Where is Love in All this horror?
Where is Peace during war, strife, anger, resentment?
Where is Compassion in All the exploitation, disregard, and profiteering?

God is inside You,
Waiting.
Love is Within Your own Heart,
Yearning.
Peace Rests upon Your Shoulders,
Sighing.
Compassion Lies in the Palm of Your Hand,
Pleading.

  1. I especially like the final 2 lines–that “compassion lies in the palm of your/my hand” is moving, and instructive. Excellent.
