September of Compassion

A poem inspired by Compassion International’s Blogging Month Compassion

by m. e. roach

 

flying broken

the path is dark

the way is lonely

 

humanity cries out

looking for hope

hope in a city street

hope in someone’s arms

hope in a mansion

hope in a bar

 

empty Americans

searching, searching

missing it.

 

sometimes hope begins

by giving it to someone else
