Remembering Martin, In Fearful Times

We will not let our fear

            beget the fear

            that frozen into bullets

            separates us from the love

            that frees us from such fear,

            that we forgetting all the faithful

            who have gone before

            lie down before the god of greed and gore

            and lose the life they won for us

            in fearful times

            in hopeful dreams.

One Response to Remembering Martin, In Fearful Times

  1. Loretta Strharsky says:

    We will not let our fear consume us, but I worry about the anger that takes our energies day by day. Fear might freeze us, but anger often makes us unable to focus, unable to direct that anger to creative, positive, intense actions. I am grateful I have the presence of mind to reflect on these things, to remember those unheralded friends and companions who have shared their energies and have worked tirelessly to focus on righteousness, justice, compassion and love. And to refocus energies in these often very dark times.
