A tortured time

After Nehemiah 6:1-14 and I John 4:16-19

It is a tortured time,
easier to believe the worst
assume the best is foolish
assume the best is dangerous.
Voices mock trust, ridicule
belief. Choruses of distrust
sing and shout to drown
understanding, to extinguish

A time when to overcome
and crush is everything,
a hollow time
for hollow men.
