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.
And,
Above all,
Shout to those ahead and behind,
Perseverance!
Endurance!
Love must overcome
The silence of apathy.

Beautiful and thought provoking imagery.
Second last line, I would see as;
'Love has overcome'
With thanks for sharing your journey.
