They Ran

 

(after the Boston Bombing and seeing people run toward the devastation)

 

flame

shattering peace

hate

destroying life

need

moving strangers

 

God’s messengers of peace

 

heroes as they ran

normal becoming noble

unknowing if another

bomb

would end their run

toward destruction

knowing only of need

 

God’s messengers of peace

 

sudden heroes

run

reclaiming lives

love

restoring hope

heal

 

I thank God we share a world

with heroes such as these who

drowning hate in highest love

 

triumph
