This Ache

where oh where did it even come from
this attitude of mine that feels so glum
it colors my days and haunts many nights
with fearful images, scenes of fights

this ache in my heart I don’t recognize
and I keep hearing pain in these desperate cries
I look for the unity that feels so lost
among figures gone dark and quick to accost

our world’s gone crazy it’s now plain to see
and it’s deadly for you and deadly for me
is there still a pathway out of this mess
I plead and I pray the answer is yes

oh what would it take to end all the hate
and the violent acts so common of late
we can’t fix the world, but inside we must try
to grow and spread love, at least you and I
