It matters not
how often we step
to podiums draped
in flags of arrogance
to justify war, violence
and murder of the innocent,
it is true and will remain
true forever, that
“God is love, and
the one who abides in love
abides in God, and
God in him.” (1 John 16b)

  1. Dennis…you’ve been holding out on us!! Your poem is powerful and to the point…and so is your song!!! Both ends of the proverbial spectrum so to speak. I am moved…very moved. Thank you ❤

  2. Love can heal every war, every enemy, every bit of violence in the world. Thank you for spreading the love.

  3. I just wish sometimes they’d get the little word “love” all figured out… God’s got his own meaning and humans have just got to figure that little meaning out in “love” 🙂

  4. your words are beautiful as is the music and musician singing them…
    You have a wonderful gift that we are Blessed to be a part of
    Thank You …for sharing
    Take Care…You Matter…
