Again & Again

image

It has happened again
It will happen again

None of this new

Desperate for safety
Fleeing across treacherous waters
Trusting strangers to get there

Not welcomed
Feared
Ignored

All this has happened before
All this will happen again

Present comfort clung to
Past forgotten
When ancestors fled
Desperate
Feared

Again and again
Again and again

All this has happened before
All this will happen again

poem inspired by news events coming out of Syria and Ecclesiastes 1:9

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again ; there is nothing new under the sun.
