on looking at pictures of Syrian kids: for RU and those like her

too many hearts
are hardened, are closed
to the suffering
the poor, the misplaced
in this troubled world
when they should be open
regardless of emotional cost
for hearts are gateways
to our humanity
it is hearts of compassion
through which
God speaks

in reference to pictures on FORGOTTEN HOPES
