praying for UNC

I look outside
my window
I see flowers

blooming
but

further down          danger

is looming
people

fighting
people

dying
over silly shit like “parking spaces”

but it is probably

really about religion.
i question myself
i question the world
i question people-
Why?

How?
Why the violence?
Why the tragedy- Again?
Why do we have to keep
losing
valuable    Lives.
People that matter-
future
doctors
dentists

nurses

mothers

husbands

sons

fathers

daughters
humanitarians-
just
dissapear.
so are we all
still here because we
dont matter?
I sit in grief

puzzled
and lay in  this sorrow.
I pour a cup of tea
and pray for hope
with each

and every sip.
I take out another mug to
make another

cup of tea.
My kitchen sink
is now overflowing
with mugs.
