such a hate filled place

this world

the smallest act of good

despised

the least amount of light

one shines

at this oppressive dark

ridiculed and jeered

honesty doubted

shutters hearts

overwhelming hate

closes doors

to a kindness

all will need

some day

 

fuelling ever more

the hatred of all

that is good

and decent

and kind

in this amazing world

 


 

This has been a discouraging week.

On Sunday, ushering, I was told I

should smile more, and I was smiling,

Today, PM Harper gives Federal aid

to restore Lac Megantic after their

disaster and detractors sprout from

walls to call him self-serving.

 

I am sad.
