For a While...

Once again
The world
Comes together
In the face
Of devastation
Obliteration
Desperation
Of a people
In ruins…

Without hesitation
Humanity matters
Without hesitation
We stand
Side by side
Without hesitation

For a while…
For a while

If only
For a while
Lasted
If only
Humanity mattered
Beyond
For a while.

A great piece as always.
I have been thinking like this myself, when I first heard about Haiti I had to donate money. Then I started thinking on why haven't I done this before? There has always been tragedies, people without homes, starving, why haven't I done this before? It was a wake up call...now I just have to figure out how I can help more.

Anyway, great to hear from you again and to read your wonderful poetry :)
Hope everything is good.

Thank you my friend...we all get complacent...we get comfortable...tragedy breeds the goodness of our souls...if only it will last this time.
