For such sadness...
there is only my offering of love,
only my prayers that some small finger of light
gently touch what is so raw and hurting...
I ask that I have the courage
to open my heart
and again, and again
and choose love,
that I let hate and anger go
over the cliff side into that vast ocean
that holds what I can not...
Let me choose love
and if I must have anger,
may it be fuel for the torch of my love
that burns so fierce and so bright
at the center,
at the very core
of my entire being...
My love and prayers to the families
and community of Newtown, Connecticut and to all of us who circle them.
