In the still of every night
The stars may still be shining bright
But Darkness in the light of day
Makes hard to keep our fears away!
I do not know from when to where
Cannot conceive how we can’t care.
What we’ve become to darken ways
darkening all tomorrows days.
Where have gone the love and joy
for every single girl and boy.
STOP, stop no more I say
THIS, this is not the way.
Brothers, Sisters are we all
All together or we fall
and fall and fall
and fall and … fall!

Where is the love? Only with those I hold dear. Those like yourself, with feelings, empathy and intellect. Lovely way of expressing how we all feel (as far as we are geographically). The US has the eyes of the world on them and feel their pain.
Hi Lesley. Thank you so much. No doubt about it, my loving friend. There is no true distance when it comes to caring for one another. No distance at all.
Spot on as always Penny. Your poetry always has such meaning to it.
Thanks dear friend. You know Al, when I consider all of us who are creative (think yourself here) and caring I always feel uplifted and stronger knowing so many are out there sharing support and feelings of love to others. Thank you, most sincerely, for being such a wonderful you.
I’m not that creative. Not any more. Maybe one day again.
I am glad you are though, and so many others. It is amazing what so many people can create, and the love that goes into it.
Creatively is more than a physical form of expression (written words, painting, music, photography, etc), it’s also the thought, feeling, perception, imagination, creatively shared with others. If even only one. You share so very much creative expression, Al, as this family knows. That is the essence of what creativity is. You, my friend are definitely a “Creative” My word for people like us. And I thank you. Don’t argue with me. After all I’m a creative genius! 😄
Much work to be done to unravel this dire darkness.
Yes, yes we do, Ben. Thank goodness we’re up to the challenge.
Spreading love and kindness is the way. We all know that.♥
Absolutely, Ute. Absolutely. And gratitude. I am so very greatful for my wonderful loving friends. You’re awesome, just saying! ♡
Very nice, Penny, and so timely for what’s happening…. Keep shining your lovely light !
Hi there, Lisa. Thank you, Amiga. Having friends who live around the world is wonderful! Most especially generous hearted, and caring ones like you. I stay hopeful and continue to believe in the good within each of us.
You do a great job of reminding us to stay positive and sensitive to others…. May your day go well!
Thanks, Lisa. Having a creative mind I like to think I add a little support to other “creatives” and inspire the inspirers (as much as I can, anyway). I wish you most well.
So sad, and so true. I feel the same way too~
Hey, Cindy. Yes it is. Especially when you and I and so many others know and feel this is so very wrong.
I liked this. It was well written and the flow of it was perfect. Nice work. You’ve got my follow. Check out my comedy blog and give it a follow if you like it!
Thank you, very much . I shall!
No problem! Awesome!
