Lofty Words

bird in flower

We read for inspiration,
but he who does not put
this wisdom into practice
is a bell clanging
in the wind.

It is not enough to fill
our minds with lofty words.
The children are still dying.
Can our Creator hear us
above the wails of a mother
who holds the lifeless form
issued from her body?

Be silent, for only your
actions have meaning.
