I know that you are afraid, my dear, my love
As you and I share the same human blood
And in this time, we all seek a way to feel safe
As we are afraid of the implications of our race.
And the pressure around force us to choose a side
But Oneness is the language of the inner guide.
As how could it be that our faith in God, would divide?
Is it not just the arrogance of people and their pride?
I pray that now is a time for peace
And from this escalating war, we are freed
As no matter what religion, we all cry for our dead
And grief is not guided by how a country is lead.
How does one respond when overcome by tears?
I try to choose love, when faced with fear.
