A City in Agony

POETRY FORMAT, 19 Jul 2021

Dr Usha Roopnarain – TRANSCEND Media Service

A giant wave has crushed us
Sounds of gun shots, bombs exploding and helicopters circulating.

Sadly, they try to burn the temple of Understanding
A mosque has been burnt to ashes…
A pastor killed trying to protect his flock.
Life in South Africa is clearly A shock!

The pain is crushing, our world is set alight.
Time to detach and remember your true spiritual identities…
Time to connect to Divinity.
Our souls need tranquility.
Searching for peace.
Thoughts travel of eternity

Now we have thoughts of despair, distain and disappointment.
Don’t let the darkness swallow you!
The universe calls you to see the light.
Stop the fight.
shanti shanti shanti
