April 24, 2018
this grief is too large for words
we try to stretch our hands around it
we struggle to grasp it
but it is ungraspable
no sane thought can hold this
no one person bear the load
this grief is too large
one alone cannot bear it
when one of us bleeds
do not all of us bleed
this grief is ours
theirs, yours, mine
On the afternoon of April 23, 2018 a madman
drove a rented van along a busy Toronto sidewalk
He killed ten people and wounded dozens more.
Our city is in shock.
We cannot, of ourselves, make evil disappear;
but standing together we can ease its burden.
