A Wider Compassion


If you choose
to extend a hand
to your shadow
let it not be
out of guilt
or for recrimination
but rather the birthing
of a wider compassion
toward a humanity
cruelly given
to division
and scorn.

Endless Refrain


When could have’s
should have’s,
if only’s and maybe’s
pound on your path
like a torrential rain
seek shelter in the
promise of Love
and Mercy: God’s
hopeful and
endless refrain.
