Something Has Changed

Something has changed

it’s in the air we breathe

showing in conversation

of shoulders weighed down

by the pressure of it all.

Distress and confusion

a fear of the unseeable

nature holds its breath

as cold November winds

drive the dry, lifeless leaves

across the barren streets.

I long to make sense

of what I see all around

of a noise barely heard

amongst the crowds

jostling on the city streets

living lives in isolation

hiding in suburban bubbles

thinking they are safe

from the approaching storm.

My voice is too small

to cut through the discord

of fearful human hearts,

yet, I must still try

to stand above the fray

speaking truth in love

of grace and peace
