.....crying out


by pharp

A single teardrop is crying out
For the healing of humanity
It cries out for love and peace
Praying hatred will one day cease


A single teardrop shrieks with pain
Seeing innocent people being slain
By terrorist acts and vicious deeds
Families are broken and in despair


A single teardrop cries out with fear
Could it be the teardrop knows
This world is totally out of control
expecting end  of time is near


Yes, this teardrop shouts out still --
praying for grieving hearts to heal


For truly, "all lives matter"

As this teardrop rolls down my cheek
    I will continue to pen as I allow
my heart to speak............
