Today in Westminster

Sadly, I can’t see today bringing any peace or answers for our torn nation!

I pray for humility and honesty, for the peacemakers and the meek, for those who seek to heal division not ferment it, for a willingness to think of the best for us all not just what is expedient for the few, and of the future together not the present polarities. I pray that our governors would be humble enough to recognise mistakes, brave enough to correct them and generous enough to put aside differences for the sake of us all.


Young faces on the television News,

Old photographs taken in first day uniform,

Smart, expectant.

Premature combatants in oversized Khaki,

Armed, innocent.

Gripped in panic on ramshackle craft,

Blank, petrified.


We are lost.
