Ever restless love

Let your heart break
Until it cries out
At the thought
Of another's pain.
May compassion form words,
An unstoppable torrent,
Falling from your lips 
As a deluge,
into the dry places
Where justifications
Turn back the rivers of mercy.
Let us run,
Beyond the exhaustion of helplessness,
With hope as a beacon
Lighting the crooked paths
That have caused
Far too many feet
To stumble.
Above all,
Shout to those ahead and behind,
Love must overcome
The silence of apathy.
