In Japan
there is a beautiful girl child
more lovely than a dream
who will grow up in the shadow
of the nightmare of Hiroshima.
 
In Rwanda
is a small boy, fed
on hunger by hands of murder
who smiles with a messiah’s smile.
 
In Bosnia
where the craters of genocide
still reek of death and
lingering ghosts at night can be heard
accusing the living of atrocities, and cry
runs a kid who runs
with speed of the wind.
 
In a barrio in Mexico City
where poverty and street crime
are as thick as pollution
is born the son of a humble Maria                       
who shines with brilliance
of a new day sun.
 
In Germany
lives a Dresden-girl; in Poland
an Auschwitz-boy.  In
Israel is an elder
whose childhood was a soulless horror; whose
memories are
the chimneys of hell.
 
And I am here
a prophet without prophecy; father
of a wounded, unanswered prayer.
From whence
can answer come? 
Earth waits for Heaven and
Heaven
waits for us….

Starkly Beautiful, Mr. David.
Life is but a Continuum of paradox. As are Heaven and Earth. They all thrive upon it.
