july 8: tomorrow

words are hard to come by
words of sorrow are all i have to get me through tomorrow
i light a candle and have a vigil in honor of life

orlando

in memory of sandra
eric
trayvon
alton
philando
five who chose to wear blue

in memory of grace

because they were black
brown
blue
lives were taken
lives were lost

we cannot justify taking a life for a life for a life
nor can we accept this as a justified practice for peace and protection
we must live our lives with purpose
rather than allow death to be our pathway to reach eternal life
