LOVE AND FEAR

Pusillanimity! The terrorists’ tool
drenches communities
with its pallid mists
of suggestive viral atrocities.
Germs float in their minds
as terrifying thoughts,
causing the sickness of fear…
fear of fear; pusillanimity!
Threat being greater than action,
bringing us together:
They died for us, God bless them.
Never forget the warriors who serve freedom.
Who, through the horrors of Hell,
reveal the way to Heaven.
I am by time defeated
but have learnt from war
that love is the purpose of life…
and death is the law!
God bless thee brothers…
and all life’s Mothers.
