Burning Within! Burning Without God!

In Memoriam, in Faith

Burning Within!

Parents’ anguish             Life vanquished!

Private Mourning           Hearts Turning


Burning Within              Temptation set in

Fires ablaze                   Throngs gaze

Window smashes           Shards in ashes

Devastation                   Desecration

Grief replaced               Greed misplaced

Burning Within              Heavenly Chagrin 

          Lost  over  time,  GOD  sighs, 

You are                         ALL  mine.

In My Image                You’re designed!

I cry in vain                  You’ve killed My son in pain.

You’ve left me              For ignominy!


Extinguish the hate                  Burning Within

Distinguish your love              Yearning within

Come back to Me, My Children!      I’ll forgive the Sin.


A simple song, a profound message:   Ebony and Ivory – Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh Lord why don’t we?
