Dark Hour

My friend said that we are living in a dark hour

The news is dark; sad events hide the sun from our eyes

Cruel words hide the song of birds

Cruel acts avert our eyes from what is g

But the hour is as dark as we see it

We cannot banish the darkness alone

But we can light each other’s way with the lamp of kindness

And drown out cruel shouts with soft whispers of love

We can avert our eyes from what is ugly and cruel

To again see the beauty in the human face and heart

And we can hold that dark hour in our hand

As long as the remaining hours of light are held in our hearts.
