Is this World War Three

are we destined to stay apart

regardless of the peacemakers

and the efforts of the meek

to spread giving as a

worthwhile commodity

Will the pain be daily

these unexpected jolts

of molten fear

followed by losses

we cannot afford–

this is not something

we saved up for

Will children grow up questioning

if there is any point

in following dreams

or is there a way to keep

God’s peace close, and hope

as an option, instead of a

faraway fantasy
