And all the men and women merely players."

Feelings

    Summer 1975

 

I feel helpless
  Hearing the world sighing, crying
  People weeping and mourning
Over lost hopes and dreams that could have been

 

I feel sad
  Seeing the world tear itself apart
  People fighting, screaming, killing
For a lost dream, a lost hope, a false peace

 

I feel my heart ache
  Reaching out but not touching
  People who are broken, indifferent
  Separated by man-made barriers
Alone, aching, hurting

 

Yet I feel comforted
  Hearing, seeing, feeling
  The world groan and ache
  As a woman in labor
Giving birth to new hopes, new dreams

New lives and peace

 Thought:

"A woman when she is in travail
     hath sorrow, because her hour is come;
  but as soon as she is delivered of the child, 
    she remembereth no more the no more the anguish,
    for the joy that a man is born into the world.
"
              St. John 16:21  (KJV)
