The World’s Pain

sculpture-616821_1280

Let us not look upon the world’s pain
simply to rant or wail.
Let us hold it in our hands,
feel its flesh, touch its wounds,
kiss its tears—let us be one with it.
Let us, then, step boldly
and with hearts on fire
into the stagnant waters
of indifference and complacency
to proclaim and live
Love’s truth.
