O desolation!
Where has the joy gone?
Streets that once echoed laughter
run deep with blood and tears.
Homes, hearts, once filled with warmth
stand empty,
cold specters, testaments of cruelty.
None shall enter their doors again,
nor shall they remember.
Hearts cry from the darkness
as souls wither in the streets.
What have we done?
Our arrogance a witness against us.
The path is lost,
and we fall on our knees.


Alas, it is too late.

Deeply dark but very meaningful in these times full of chaos and uncertainty. Thank you, Marilyn. Love and peace to you,

A very spiritually written piece of perception. We must all have faith and the will to do God's work and restore our world.....

Be safe,
Karen

Sounds like what hasn't been done in many communities that were devastated by Katrina.
