The Eternal Fire Must Continue to Burn

The Eternal Fire Must Continue to Burn

Sonnet for Parsha Tzav


To make our fire of passion burn for life,

In moments of challenge and profound strife,

To find inspiration, motivation,

For devoted service and tribulation.


The challenge in the face of sadness

Is to regroup in the search of gladness;

When all that surrounds us decries madness,

We must find inner resources for soundness.


In the inner stillness of the soul,

Despite the outer chaos to seek the goal,

Never to cease from our predestined role,

To bring truth, justice, security to all.


To continue to utter our prayer,

For each man, woman and child, everywhere.
