The world in pain

Too many hurting, too many in pain

Too many being challenged with staying sane

Crises unfolding in divergent ways

COVID wave on the home front, delta rampant these days

Political decisions, fanatic fundamentalism

Converging to pose threats to humanism

Countless women and children victims of violence

In Afghanistan, where unfolds a humanitarian crisis intense..

Natural disasters are unfortunately not far behind

Haiti’s new earthquake brings 2010 to the mind

Reeling from this catastrophe new

On the background of prior damage too..

The world in shambles, its denizens hurting now

I fervently pray for the Powers above to allow

Basic tenets of humanity and common sense to return

Such that we extend help where needed, vaccinate everyone…

**

Too many ills, too much suffering than can be

Avoided if the greater good of people we can see…
