dusk arising

shall we know peace

shall we know peace
when she comes
this stranger to our land
will she lay to rest
the lost who loved
denied by murdering hands
father the orphaned child
and soothe
its ravaged loss

heal the wounds which
seep the pus of vengence
plant seeds of forgiveness
rebuild a faith in trust
feed the hungry mouths
restore human dignity


for tomorrows child is watching
