Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
We do not want to believe

Our worlds in denial
safe from reality
we do not want to believe
the evil stalking our loved ones
the harm out there
even close to home
insidious and pernicious
a cloud without the shadows
needing the love of God
the light of our Savior
piercing the darkness
we need to stand with Jesus
to heal the brokenness
all of us responsible
none should stand in silence
all of us able
to stand in the breach
