Let Love Outrun Hate

Whilst a world mourns and shakes its enraged fists,
children hover in corners weeping for fathers and mothers lost.
Family days and nights permanently altered
by societal rage as decades of hate spews forth
in fire bursts of deadly expression.

Finally, grief-stricken and hate weary men and women
embrace with the shared tenderness of the ultimate
separation: death.

Death. A terrible thing to have in common.

May love increase and outrun hate with the ferocity
of a mother lion
and the gentleness of a lamb.
