In Defense of Humanity

As I write this my heart sinks into my chest, heavy from the awfulness in this world. Looking across the beautiful countries of this Earth are saturated by violence and hate. From North Korea to Spain, Saudi Arabia to Africa and right here to my home in the USA. No place is unscathed from the vileness hate spews but those who hate are the few and we who embrace humanity are the many.

Vegas

To those who have lost their lives in other countries my heart goes out to you and your loved ones left behind. To those who lost their lives in the senseless shootings in Las Vegas, NV my heart goes to you and your loved ones. I see so many well wishes, prayers and love sent from around the world to other countries and people in these hard times. I embrace your humanity and love and I hope you embrace mine.

Those who hold kindness and love in their hearts for their fellow human beings: We are the many and they are the few.

Divided #Poetry

Eyes closed

Taking a deep breathe

Holding it in

Looking for her courage deep inside

She stood up

Letting the air out slowly

She would not allow herself to be unheard

She was against the hate speech

The violence

The killing

She would recite her words

Yell them to the heavens if she has too

Hate will never beat love

Segregation will not destroy acceptance

We are human beings should be united

Unrest #Poetry

Her heart didn’t beat with the same excitement anymore

The sparkle in her eyes glossed over

Her soul was a target full of holes and dents

She would not allow herself to be completely shattered by this world

All the negativity

Selfishness

And hate

Her will unfurled

Engulf her broken pieces and holding them tightly together

She was strong

Her love, kindness and charity began to pull forth

She was more than this horrid confusion

She would stand for herself

And for those who aren’t able

Her voice will be hers

Filled with compassion, truth and love

She will raise her voice high

For those who need aid

She will share her humanity freely

Because the world needs to be embraced

Not ripped apart
