In the name of who? #Orlando

‘No man is an island?’

Isn’t that what they say?

But sometimes I wish I were.

Sometimes I  wish I could float far away

From soil, from toil from turmoil.

Today I want to drift into the ocean

Away from the river of tears.

But the howls of anguish have traveled far

Too far for us to paddle away.


You do it in the name of what ?

In the name of who ?

Do you trust so little in your God

That you do what you do?

Do you think his plan so worthless that you must kill it ?

You who cry belief to the moon

Seek divinity too soon

For reasons that alter with the winds of time

You commit these vengeful crimes.

But remember this:

What will not alter

What will not falter

Is that the lava beneath us, is full of fire

And although we may wish to be islands

Although that is what you desire

You try  to push us apart.

The lava will meld our hearts.

Together. Forever.

Despite you.
