Some will be long in recovery, because Some refused to hold their tongues,
used a worldwide pandemic to stomp the life out of those still breathing
with politics, religion, position, on and on and on… forgetting everything precious, they could not hold back hidden malice,
which poured forth a continuous venom day after day in comments and posts- every slanderous accusation against their fellow man, the lack of love evident in every communication, hanging in the stratosphere
like the droplets that threaten to annihilate all hope, judgements thinly disguised as intellect, facts about face masks which cannot keep back the spread of hate, after all… only the spread of death, but divided we are in our compassion for others, when we have been ruled by what is most convenient for us for too long…
defeated, some crouched in corners weeping for the Christ-less desolate hearts of those who said, “We believe he lives”, yet still, dragged Him from the throne, of their own construction, back to Golgotha and nailed him again and again and again to that cross…
as if the murderous words they spoke towards one another – deadlier than any global pandemic, costlier and more contagious than any living virus did not matter.
