Love Conquers Hate

Written by: Michael J. Falotico


                                  When the rain stops and the tears still flow…
                                Our souls are unmasked as feelings still show…
                                       Hands that write to lessen the pain…
                                  For my words to be read to keep us sane…
                                     Lasting impressions etched on a wall…
                                 As we sit on the edge of an emotional fall…
                         We grasp this world and the events that took place…
                       As our beliefs are tested through the tears on our face…
                         Hands reached across the land as fear becomes faith…
                                And warm hearts bleed as love conquers hate…
