Universal Fright

I am not comfortable
with the direction in
which this planet is
spinning, and has
been for far too long.
Frankly, I’m scared.
It’s a universal fright.
Right now we can’t
imagine, or even
understand what
happened or why.
It’s not ignorance,
it is bigger than that.
Who even allowed
this? On our watch?
How will we deal
with the aftermath?
I can’t even think of
solutions right now,
I can only know I
have friends who are
feeling this far more
deeply than I.
Will we work this out
together? Can we give
peace another chance?
It is our responsibility
to each other.
