Seeing and Seeking (A Poem)

This is a poem I wrote years ago, after another tragedy shifted the world.  Remember, look for the heroes and the light.

Seeing and Seeking

 I saw the devil yesterday
cloaked in flame and smoke
three stories high
coughing glass fragments
and shrapnel
severing limbs and drawing blood

Others have seen him
in a gunman’s silhouette
heard him hissing
as acid hit flesh

But I have also seen God
in the reflection of a badge
heard Him in the footsteps
of Samaritans rushing to aid
felt His hand in the hand
of every victim

smiling through His tears
