The Middle East

The Middle East

the middle east is an area of concern

how much longer can such hate burn?

the division of the peoples, the raging of fear

how can the feeling of peace ever get near?

into the empty streets and the bombed out buildings

into the hearts of those touched by the killings

into the neighbourhoods, into the fields

let it be love that enables and the heart that yields

yields and forgives for hatred builds more

love can replenish and heal the before

understanding that all are part of the disease

loving ourselves will help the pain ease

loving our neighbours and forgiving them too

gives a fresh start, it is all we can do

peace is the result, the result of our love

pray for it, live it, it’s what we’re made of
