Shadowed Heart

The sun went down on yesterday.
When evil had it's horrid way.
A new day dawn's around the world.
As a bloody flag has been unfurled.

Somehow our joy is not the same.
A little dimmer burns the flame.
We carry on and do our part.
But we're reminded with a shadowed heart.

Jesus said there would be trouble.
That no one lives inside a bubble.
But how many lesson's must be taught?
To learn that action is not a thought.

As we go on and live our lives.
And simple pleasure still survives
As we are left to now restart.
The past is cast in our shadowed heart.

Prayers, peace and hope for Paris and this world. Amen

    you mentioned to me that you had no words for this but you've done a wonderful job of making your words shine here, robert. it's so hard to comprehend that these awful things continue to happen in the world but i think writing is a good way to get our feelings out.
