Very Deep Waters

We are living in very deep waters:
Anxiety, fear, violence.
For most of us, not every day,
But in the media. Yes.

It does not leave us alone.
Freedom of the press, once
The vibrant tool of Democracy,
Has become our enemy.

Be strong, stand still, and
Listen to your heart.
Love those around you.
They are hurting too.

Love has a strange way
Of working miracles.
