Spring Comes in Despite
Spring comes in despite our fears
Flowers bloom in the dank soil of despair
The bloody streets and schoolyards,
Washed by a mother’s tears,
Reflect the sun on a dawning day.
We hear the voices of hate
The politics of greed
Anger pounding away at love
While children live in fear.
Don’t build the walls
Let the refugees in
Let our hearts open like the bud
So spring can come
To this troubled world.
