Poem: Human Violence

Tragic legacy
pervasive pattern repeating
itself through the ages
a rippling effect on relationship
at every level
power over/against
desecrating human dignity
defiantly destroying creation
violence literally
in the water we drink.

And God said
“Whom shall I send?

(Originally published in the Spring 2016 issue of HOPE magazine.)
