To All Of You

There are times we are left to cope
With situations that drain our hope

Leaving us full of despair
At how some people just don't care

About the evil that they do
To good people like all of you

We are left to somehow face
That in mankind there is disgrace

And those of us left alive
Must find away to survive

As you pick up the pieces of your life
Without your mother, father, husband or wife

And some of you God forbid
Without the love of your kids

We must band together with a brotherhood
Show that in this world there is some good

Because we are together in this deal
We try to help each other heal

We seek in each other good advice
And offer each other sacrifice

We hold each other in prayer and song
As we continue to re-build the wrong

Because what else in the world can we do
Except let the light of good shine through

The evil darkness and despair
Of a catastrophic lack of care

We want you to know you are not alone
Think of America as a giant cone

And all of us are funneling through
Our prayers and hopes to all of you

This is a powerful write, MJ, and I couldn't agree with you more about the need to forge a stronger brotherhood of man. With God's help, perhaps one day we shall. Love, Carolyn

I Could Feel the Hand-Holding and the Wish for a better Humanity... And Even before I got to the end... I Thought of 9/11... That's how good it was... Going into my Favorites, so I can read it often... MoonBee
