“There shall no evil come to thee: nor shall the scourge come near thy dwelling.” – Psalm 91:10
No longer driven this way and that,
because we are given the blessing of adaptability
in times of war, when all appears lost.
And, in times of peace as well,
in our homes, and when all alone,
to remember our brethren and kin,
when we have no one to tell
our troubles to except for G-d.
The memories of ashes, everywhere,
like dust in the currents of wind,
that shift across the ages.
Yet, renewal is at hand,
across this war-torn land,
when we turn to the One above,
Who can reconcile our lives to Himself,
and absolve our sins of indifference
to both G-d and mankind.
