lost message

let’s redirect the anecdote
remember the moment of beauty and calm
the violence has gained much of our time
the pain that ravished the days
let’s not lose the message
love is greater to recall
easier to digest and honor
a patch of green pasture births hope
and among all of our history
the desert will replenish with seeds
as the rain feeds and fuels the rage to carry on

stand beside me
let’s fight together
let’s win this war
let the message thrive that love is not lost
it’s the only thing that kept us here
