The Only One

Standard

“The only One Who can teach me to find God is God, Himself, Alone.”

Thomas Merton, Seeds of Contemplation.

The only one
who can fill black night
with interior light,

who can lead me
past the gun-shots,
the thump and thud,
the hate filled percussion,
of hidden mines,

the death of
children

is God,
Himself,
Alone.
