In Charleston

today

it rained here.

blue skies in Charleston

is what i’ve heard

doesn’t seem right.

it just doesn’t seem right.

light a candle to show

you’re praying

is what i’ve heard.

doesn’t seem enough.

it just doesn’t seem enough.


i do it anyway

and each time

i walk

past

i pray

“help, Jesus, help.”


martyrs

in the middle east

is what i’ve heard.

don’t seem so far away

they just don’t seem so far away

today.

  1. It is so sad, to learn that some people have such hate in their hearts. I don’t understand. .

  2. Wow friend! This is powerful. Catching up on two posts at one time is always a risk sometimes, because there can be such opposing subject matters. But it’s a balance and I am thankful for the hope in the first one. And I am humbled by the words in the second and the truth that flows through it all. I read this like a prayer and my heart aches, but I know God heard it.
