My heart is heavy in this place
from a blast that tore into the crowd
and ripped so many lives apart.
My heart is heavy
to my knees
with an unseen God to make sense of what we do
in our human race to find meaning.
And the only sense I can find
in all this pain
is to surrender fear and hatred
to let go of hostility and revenge
and fall into the one thing that is always there
the one thing that gives me peace
in times of turmoil, strife and fear
in times of happiness, joy and elation.
No matter what is going on in our world,
there is only one thing I can do
to find peace.
I surrender to Love.
