A Ray Of Hope Is All It Takes

Amid guns, hate and crime
Where’s room for love sublime?

Amid juries, judgments and verdicts,
Hearts ache, eyes weep and pain afflicts

Amid riots and protests,
Hate abates or itself attests?

Is it all ‘doom and gloom’ through to the tomb?
Don’t believe we rose for ‘this’ from the womb!

Leave a legacy of hate for our children as debt?
Or be children in our hearts, just forgive and forget!

Showers of blissful rain, we have been endowed
Look, there’s a silver lining in each and every cloud

A ray of hope is all it takes,
A light of love shines, and the world awakes…
