Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Building inside out,
while others insides
are being ripped out.

Starting over
building trenches
while others are buried in them.
How can we justify starting over when others lives are over or struggling to stay alive?

The remorse we feel as we sit in a daze
hands tied for fear of genocide.

Barbarians stop at nothing bombing mothers and babies โ€ฆ.
our only hopes for our future.

The pain and suffering of this mad man canโ€™t be fathomed while we watch in disbelief.

This trickery of hell
While shaking in our boots, staying strong just waiting for relief.

We drag our bloodied bodies knowing truth will prevail.
We can not let them win and not soon enough theyโ€™ll fail.

They might take our homes and bodies but they can take our souls that carry on

weary and heartbroken these barbarians will have their day,

keep building Bridges of love and faith
raising our voices and opening our hearts and pockets.

Another hitler on the run, we never thought this day would come.

Our hearts continue holding bleeding hearts while repairing from the inside out.

We drag ourselves from the fire and through the tears we stand our ground in a war that should never have been.

During these unspeakable times, I find it hard to feel deserving of building and reconstructing what i have been dreaming of for so long, while i watch others being destroyed in one fell swoop in the rubble and shambles. While our hearts ache, we must stay strong, keep our vision and love. Wishing you love and blessings as you hold both places of love and grief.

Love and Blessings,

๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™

P.S.

If you are looking for ways to help, our friend David at Skeptic’s Kaddish is supporting his wife Margarita Gorodnitsky, in her efforts to send money to Ukraine, as am I. I personally don’t like to donate money on sites and am hesitant if things actually make it to the intended place and question if it is a secure site.

The big advantage of donating money through her is that it’s going directly to purchases for people in Kyiv that are being requested by the people in Kyiv that are friends and colleagues that she personally knows and talks to everyday.  While there are a lot of big organizations contributing to the cause, they often donate what they think people might need, rather than what people say they need. 

Margo (Davidโ€™s wifeโ€™s nickname) is donating what people are requesting. She already purchased 32 first aid kits, which she sent to Kyiv with Ukrainian construction workers who were working in Israel and who chose to return home to fight… and further purchases will also be sent home with other Ukrainian construction workers working here in Israel who are flying home.

Thank you so much Margo!

Her PayPal information is the same as her email so feel free to reach out to her if you have any questions. margarita.gorodnitsky@gmail.com

Thank you, Cindy, for expressing so well what we all feel about the Ukraine. Shame only that we don’t have someone like Churchill here and now. Where would we be today if he didn’t declare the war on Germany?

Your picture feels very deeply meaningful, all feeling poet hearts are tender with shock and grief about this reality unfolding. So difficult to justify the disaprity in what we as humans get to live as blessings while watching the horror of others. Just breathing Gratitude in and out, and ways that our time here be fulfilling for ourselves and others – our planet needs all the peace, love and joy we can cultivate through our being and living. You expressed so deeply and beautifully in your poem, it helps me sit with the sentiments.

A grabbing reality, that so many Americans have not felt weight or the waging of being wiped out… That’s why so many Americans can afford to be petty, because they have no ideal of what it is like to be a race that is trying to be wiped out or a country one must flea…My clouds are your clouds…I did not plan on saying this much…but it is so moving to think all we have here and yet all we do is murmur and complain! Much love and respect for the tender heart you possess!

Oh my goodness Cindy, your expression through your prose is shared by so many of us. History continues to spin a new take on an old injustice. I can’t even watch the nightly news right now, because I think the lastest catastrophes from yesterday simply left me depleted.

But honey, I so agree with you that they may try to take what we have, our homes, our bodies, but they can’t take our souls unless we sell it to them…and that ain’t happening if we can help it. ๐Ÿคจ Your photo of contemplation with your remodeling project adds a special touch to your sentiments. Bravo girlfriend, but the truth hurts! ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ™

Your poem makes me realise โ€”

โ€œthey’re no difference of signs, languages, blood or identities, we are humans.

Killing a human is equal to killing ourself.

We should behave friendly. Afterall it return back to us, in several ways.โ€
