Collaborative poem: To Boston

To Boston

– a collaborative poem by varied WfR writers

 

If I could say one thing to the people of Boston,

I’d tell them we send love and healing.

Human kindness will overcome badness.

 

If I could say one thing to the people of Boston, 

I’d tell them to reach out to each other,

To find comfort and understanding.

There is more kindness in the world than there is evil.

You just have to ask.

 

If I could say one thing to the people of Boston, 

I’d tell them, “Be patient with yourselves and your reactions.

It may take time and it may take some help,

but you will recover.”

 

Human kindness will overcome badness.

 There is more kindness in the world than there is evil.

 

You just have to ask,

Be patient with yourselves,

Reach out to each other

To find comfort, understanding,

Love and healing.

Given time and some help,

You will recover.
