Still we rise again


in ruthless devastation

yet again we rise

to be a witness

of persevering courage

and forgiving heart

that we too shall rise

brick by brick, each of us can

tear down cemented walls

in spite of the loss

a calm quells the violent storm

Sun rises again

many before us

showed us that Freedom’s way

was paved with love

and untainted faith

that a new day would dawn

lit by a peace lamp

though we may stumble

soaked and riddled with pain

still we rise again

    1. Thank you Ron, I had a good week away learning about the magic of the brain. That said though, there are so many examples of how we’ve historically overcome adversity that I hope 5 years from now, the current picture will be blurred.

  1. All favorite quotes of mine, esp that last one. Even in dark times, hope springs eternal. Sometimes it’s an uphill climb and hope is all that keeps us going. Thanks for your inspirational words. 🙂
