A Need for Healing
By Ann Marie Vale, Former Sarasota Pen Woman in Letters
A poem from our former and talented member, who recently moved and transferred to the Cape Cod Branch, offers this poem, which appeared as National’s Poem of the Week
A desire to reach out in love With the grace bestowed from God above, Offering a fervent prayer for each other As a spiritual hug for each sister and brother. We pray for patience, peace, and unity. Unified, our prayers can build up immunity To Corona, violence, and all other ills. Yes, all our needs the Creator fulfills. Every member of our human race Possesses a purpose no one can erase. The need to discover and pursue your unique goal Is deeply implanted in every person’s soul. So, let us follow our goals and pray with determination That love will conquer and replace consternation. We salute our flag as it waves unfurled And ask God to help us lead this world Back to a culture of love and respect. Indeed, we ask God to bless and protect Every human being as we proudly proclaim: “God bless America,” or we shall never be the same. “God, heal our nation and we shall forever be blessed.” We pray for His guidance and hope for the best.
