A poem about rising in the midst of chaos in our world
Even when devastation is all around
And there is Hatred looming in the crowds
Even when Senseless crimes occur
You see people rise and make a difference.
Even when the news shows a child who cries for its mother
And you See the man searching for his family
You are able to see those who focus on helping others in the midst of all the pain.
Then you see crowds of people gather to help one another
Children sing a song of praise.
Then suddenly the Rejoicing spreads
You also see women and men who gather to help the neighbors
And rebuild their homes.
Then suddenly you see the Rejoicing Spreads.
Even when the Devastation is all around
And Hatred seems to loom in the crowds
the senseless crimes are everywhere but
No matter what the times bring, the Rejoicing has spread, and with it Love, and that will always prevail.
