Halt for Love

There’s too much

Hate in the world,

 Too much violence,

Sorrow and pain…

It has to stop!


But God’s not gonna stop it.


With respect and love for us His children

Free will He gave…


The choice in our hands,

To stop the madness.


Will we put

The brakes 

On our own unkind,

Reckless and

Hurtful acts?


Or keep racing

Through crossroads

And intersections, 

Red lights in our eyes,

Half blind?


Please stop

To “Reconsider Love,

 And I, still praying,

Without cessation

For a miracle.


-Gilda Patricia

Poems that feed the soul

  1. This brought tears again–it’s so easy to feel defeated–“red lights in our eyes, half blind”…. I was reading multiple Psalms in The Message version today–if you haven’t peeked in it, it’s really great for the “modern language”. I don’t remember which Psalm it was, but there was a line about a day coming when God will say “ENOUGH!” That gave me hope.
