What To Do With Darkness

What do you do with the darkness? What do you do when the pictures pouring in are of rows of bodies, shrouded children killed in their sleep? What prayer do you pray to seek peace in the world or find peace in your soul?

What do you do when you can’t look away any longer? How will you speak when all words fail? Where do you put the pain that piles upon your heart till it can’t hold up?

And why? “Why? Why?” The question it asks as it’s breaking.

Why are we killing worlds? How can we snuff them out before their light has time to catch the air and glimmer? Where do they go after we suck them into the black hole of our fear and hatred and selfishness?

What difference can one voice make midst the din of weeping? Where is the light that signals dawn is coming? How will things ever come right?

And who? Who will heal us all?

“His life brought light to everyone.
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness can never extinguish it.”
