Steadfast

matt-nelson-259365

On this

a day of fun disguises

where real life escapes

into make believe

make up,

a slaughter of spirit

crashes humanity back,

a stirring beneath

extended from a heartless

darkness

striking…breath

activator thief madman

terrorist

wiping out

what right he has not been given

pain rages

and yet

Dogs Are Walked

and makeup comes off

but though

candy will not taste

as sweet

tonight,

FIERCENESS thrives

fortified

and GRIT

made steadfast.

ENOUGH!! Heartfelt prayers for those affected by act of terror today in Manhattan.
