Discarded

20140802-072325-26605368.jpg

I found a paper crane
Lying in the road,
Discarded, tossed away,
Tire tracks across its broken wing.

And I thought,
So this is what we’ve come to
In this broken world of ours.

Peace, discarded
and run over in the street.
Bombs falling on schools,
Refugee children dying in the desert,
Missiles blasting innocents from the sky.

Where is wisdom?
Who is the keeper of justice?
What has happened to the way of peace?

Kyrie eleison.
Lord, have mercy.
Help us.
