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.
