Prophet’s Melody (Memory and Hope)

Baton Rouge matters (2)

By Omar with permission 2016

“ .. if anything can, it is memory that will save humanity.

For me, hope without memory is like memory without hope.” – Elie Wiesel

 

Elie-Wiesel-QuotesI want to touch

the arm of Elie Wiesel

while he calls down hope

 

I want to feel

my children’s children’s

wonderful melody

 

Sitting Bull - graphite pencil sketch by Greg Joens (2)I want to see

the eyes of Sitting Bull

before he dies the prophets fate

 

Before the days of Baton Rouge

before the days of hate

 

I want to look

upon the face of god

my unblinking desire

 

Before the night of darkest dread

before the winds of fire ..

 

TRCHuman beings should be held accountable. Leave God alone. He has enough problems.

– Elie Wiesel
