Shadows of Sadness

IMG_3778 (2)

Spring sun shines brightly

Skies blue and cottony over head

Yet, shadows of sadness surround me

*

Life’s journey brought me here

Overcoming through ups and downs

Yet, shadows of sadness surround me

*

So quickly our good life gets disrupted

Many hide as tanks roll and bombs explode

As shadows of sadness surround them

*

As men take a stand and mothers flee

Innocent people die daily from blind destruction

And, shadows of sadness surround me

*

Power corrupts and divides us

Greed and Evil are Siamese twins

Yet, hope rises in the sadness that surrounds us

*

People with hope believe in their cause

Willing to die rather than loose their freedom

And, hope for their children empowers them…

*

In spite of the sad shadows that surround us all

*

  1. It’s such a sad situation! To lose so much as a country so needlessly. To lose so many people so needlessly. God, loose the chains of evil that bind Putin’s heart and help him lose his evil intentions!
