BE THE BALM

With bated breath

pits in stomachs

lumps in our throats

we’ve been waiting

hating

When will this suffering end

When do we breathe

again

Show me the balm

Find me a haven

One is a gull

One is a raven

Praying for the relief of pain, suffering, and loss- and the complex after effects of trauma. The world needs so much healing: from war, violence, cruelty, natural and human-made disasters, gun violence, sickness, death, poverty, climate change; and every form of abuse, suppression, control, racism, sexism, discrimination, inequality and injustice.

TRANSFORM US, O GOD.
