Poem: Too Many Books

too many booksToo many books

Not enough readers

Too many poems

Not enough heeders


You say you want answers

You say want leaders

You pray for salvation

At the Church of St. Peter


prayingAsk for forgiveness

Ask and repent

Ask for an ending

To ongoing Lent


Something like calm

Something like grace

Something to cure

The whole human race


power of group danceThe whisper of magic

We desperately seek

Ready to welcome

The strong and the meek


Find it on paper

Find it on air

Find it forever

Right now and right here

walking toward the light

Too many poems

Too many books

Too many lost souls

Don’t know where to look
