To the poets, the artists,
the seers and the seekers.
The pastors and mystics,
monks, and divines,
uplift humanity from the dust
of hate, enmity, and pain.
Uplift, O believers in God’s Plan!
Uplift, O followers of God’s light!
Do not walk past that child lying in blood!
Do not stroll past the man shot in his own car!
Hear the cries as your God hears them!
Wipe the tears as your Lord wipes them!
Bring to the table the love They have all taught.
For true love goes where there is need
Not where there is comfort and ease.
Faith in action is the only answer!
