last night I had a strange dream
I woke up hearing someone sob
I went out to search it out
located it to the temple nearby.
Curious I got inside the divine abode
to my shock I realized
the deity was crying inconsolably
tears of fire streaming down her cheek.
Everywhere that tear dropped
a small flame of fire shot up
surprised I knelt down before her
and begged her for the reason.
Gently she spoke, in a voice sweet
“My child, I cry for thee all…
My tears fall when you hate each other.
When those who are supposed to save, kill.”
I saw in the temple wall, reflections of torment.
A king torturing his subjects, a priest cheating.
A mother hitting her child heartlessly..and more.
Softly she said, “This goes on and on and I cry…”
