A gogyohka

putting morality aside just for a moment
is making nothing better
(please) stop attacking
hope

  1. Great poem, Ben. It is indeed very sad ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I am sending prayers not for victory, or for one side or the other, but for the power of peace and compassion.

    1. Those are precisely the prayers that we need, Nick. Thank you!

      BTW, please feel free to call me ‘David’ ~ the word ‘ben’ means ‘son of’ in Hebrew, and my father’s name was ‘Alexander’. My blog is dedicated to his memory.

      Much love,
      David
