radiance of tomorrow

there is brokenness in the world

and each morning seems to bring more stories,

more news

of violence, crime, heartbreak, racism, hatred, bullying, judging, loss

 

stories that have the ones who hear them

with their hearts and souls

weeping

and wondering if the world will ever be set to right again

 

and yet each night as I burrow under my blanket

seeking rest despite the rips in the fabric of our being

I find myself looking toward what I hope will come when I awaken

and embrace a new day

 

the healing, the kindness, the good in all of us

 

and I dream of the radiance of tomorrow

and all that could be

if we only

could

be

menders

of the rips

and pEAce it all back together again
