Suffice

What could I write that would suffice

After a day that has put so much

Of what we take for granted on center stage?

What words could I choose to type

That would shed a small bit of light

On the sanctity, respect, and trust in a system

That must remain– and of which we can’t lose sight?

What truths could I remember that might allay

The growing fear that has been put on display?

What questions must we all now ask

To rebuild this once trusted system

For which so many have given to protect?

What could I write that would suffice

On the eve of a future

Where we must take so much less for granted

If we are to hold on to this life?
