To Ease the Suffering

To Ease the Suffering

May God
hold the lives
just lost
within our 
outlaw country;
Why, Dear Ones,
do we defend
our guns
the way
we should
defend our peace?

I shall light candles
and ask Buddha and
the Christ
to forget us not;

Help us
exude Light
in the midst of heartache
and heartbreak;

May the goodness
in us all
that as a nation
we have so very much
to heal.
