Love is Enough for Syria

Today I believe love is enough,

Even when Syria kills its own kids with gas,

The world gasping with their dying breaths.

Today I believe past political narcissism.

Love knows how to scoop up broken bodies,

Bind screams,

Embrace avengers.

Even when the power-hungry tires to trump

It’s gentle kiss,

Love says, “Enough.”Tweet This

I do not understand her fluid, healing tongue.

I watch it speak swiftly, and I use my own.

Respond to the Syria Chemical Attack

Preemptive Love Coalition is on the ground helping those in Syria. You can respond in love with them to help those affected by the tragedy.

Five Minute Friday Retreat

This post is part of the Five Minute Friday crew, a community of creative writers. Today our one-word writing prompt was ENOUGH.

P.S. If you’re looking for an inexpensive creatively-inspiring writing retreat this summer, come to the Five Minute Friday retreat July 21-23. Just twelve spots left! I know a few people are on the fence about it. Here are three reasons you should go:

  1. There may or may not be wood-fired pizza. Ahem.
  2. It’s what all the cool people are doing.
  3. Yo! It’s about time you invested in your calling.
