When there is nothing else...

"Shadow of Cowardice "

        by

James Patrick Lockett


Each and every day
shadows are cast across our souls
and we must dig deep within ourselves
to recognize the difference 'tween
one man standing
in the way of the light, and
the cowardice, the hatred, that hide
behind the mask of shadow
that creeps across us.

Each and every day
we must bond our souls against
the shadows of cowardice
and call them on out,
to make light of their darkness;
and in standing together, we can defeat
the shadows that threaten to block our light.

Muslims do night hide behind black hoods.
Christians do not hide behind white hoods.
Faith does not hide in the shadows,
hatred does.
Faith lives in the light, all faiths.
Try as you might oh cowar'd shadows,
you cannot block our light.

Wow! My apologies. . .

. . . I just realized that I have failed to post anything at all for 2015.  I would love to it's because I'm successfully writing stories  and brilliant essays for other venues, but that would be a lie.   I  have a number of things to post now that laptop issues have been resolved and will get to them shortly, your patience is always appreciated.
