Shattered but Gathered

Shocked and shattered, we of tears and woe wept

To all corners – Humanity’s ruin

Into little pieces, away we’re swept

From hairline fractures rent to rubble strewn

Petty prejudice, greed, fear and doubt

Into our hearts estrangements bear heavy

Impending ruin to which we’re thrust

Asylum seekers from once an Eden

 Gathering up pieces our love did dare

Gluing back together the trust – golden

Restoring love global fitting to share

Offered up a bowl without flaws

That carried our future into hope’s maws.
